*ASWB CE Credit Changes 2018: Beginning September 25, 2018, ASA will no longer be able to  issue ASWB CE credits for recorded web seminar attendance. You can only claim ASWB CE credit if you watch “Seeing Clearly with PD: Vision Changes” at 10:00 AM PT on March 5, 2019. We apologize for any inconvenience. This change is due to ASWB ACE Provider distance learning requirements.

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is commonly viewed as a disease characterized by motor deficits, but visual conditions that can negatively impact daily function and quality of life are common. Among the most common conditions are ocular surface irritation, convergence insufficiency, hallucinations and blurry or subnormal vision. This web seminar will focus on how to recognize and treat the most common symptoms experienced by people living with PD.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe the most common visual conditions in PD;
  • List why these conditions are common; and,
  • Describe how to address or treat these issues.

Presenters:

Daniel R. Gold, D.O., is an assistant professor of Neurology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery and Neurosurgery at The Johns Hopkins University. He is a neurologist with fellowship training in neuro-ophthalmology and additional training in neuro-vestibular disorders.
