7:00 p.m. - CE lecture begins

Dr. Kathryn Deliso (Associate Professor of Low Vision & Rehabilitation Services, Director of Externships (MCPHS))

Something’s Missing: The Disconnect between Functional Vision Impairment and Geographic Atrophy - Unlike neovascular AMD, Geographic Atrophy progresses slowly and spares the foveal center until late in the course of the disease. These individuals might present with seemingly preserved central acuity and functional complaints disproportionate to best corrected acuity. A low vision evaluation includes an assessment of scotomas, a critically significant element of vision rehabilitation for those individuals with foveal sparing Geographic Atrophy. (79684-LV, 2 hours)

Note: Per the RIOA CE Committee's request, Dr. Deliso plans to include the dry AMD treatment recently approved by the FDA in this lecture.  The lecture and event will be COPE accredited.
