COVID-19 and Other Emerging Infectious Diseases: Ophthalmic Manifestations and Their Impact on the Delivery of Eye Care
Description: Dr. Holland will present on the growing SARS-CoV-2 pandemic (and COVID-19, the disease it causes) throughout the world, which has had a profound impact on all aspects of society, including delivery of healthcare. Of particular importance has been implementation of strategies to protect both patients and healthcare providers against virus transmission. Allied health personnel play a critical role in the ability to care for patients safely.
This presentation will provide an update on topics related to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic that are important for healthcare workers including the latest epidemiologic information; current knowledge about modes of virus transmission; use of personal protective equipment; appropriate modifications to the workplace; and strategies to reduce risk of infection during clinical activities. The potential impact of the pandemic on the future of eye care will be considered. Dr. Holland will also address the infrequent ophthalmic manifestations of SARS-CoV-2 infection, as well as a general overview of vaccine development and treatments for COVID-19. 
The presentation will conclude with a discussion of previous epidemics and pandemics of importance to eye care providers, including those involving AIDS, Ebola and Zika, and how those outbreaks have informed our approach to the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

Neuroimaging in Ophthalmology
Description: Patients often present for eye exams because of headaches or other neurological concerns. What is the role of neuroimaging in evaluating patients with eye problems? In addition, what should prompt the eye care provider to consider obtaining neuroimaging studies? This course will address the different types of studies that can be performed, when they should be ordered and the urgency of doing so. The instructor will also show abnormal findings that correlate with different visual and neurological disorders that patients seen by ophthalmic technical personnel may have.

What Is This? Ocular Findings in Systemic Disease
Description: This course discusses the relationship between the eye and important systemic diseases. Eyes have often been called the “window” to the rest of the body, a tribute to the many systemic diseases whose ocular findings can lead to accurate diagnoses. This course discusses the ocular findings and their frequent association with systemic diseases.

Ophthalmology Through the Eyes of a Microscope: Ocular Histology
Description: Histology is the study of tissue and in this case, we will examine the tissues that make up the eye. This course will first address the fundamentals of histology: fixation, staining and how the cells that make up the tissues look underneath the microscope. This is followed by examining the three layers that make up the globe along with extraocular tissues (e.g., lacrimal glands and eyelids).

Description: This course will discuss interesting cases in ocular oncology, including FA and B-scan/UBM findings. It will include an in-depth discussion of what the technician should be evaluating prior to the patient seeing the ophthalmologist and when to refer the patient. We will address anterior segment lesions in the iris, CS and posterior segment lesions in the choroid. Iris melanomas, vascular malformations, choroidal metastasis, primary uveal melanomas and interesting CHRPE-like lesions will be some of the cases discussed.

OCT as an Efficient Tool for Unexplained Vision Loss in Pediatric Ophthalmology
Description: When pediatric vision loss cannot be explained by refractive error, strabismus or related amblyopia, it is often assumed that the cause is functional. Sometimes severe underlying etiologies are potentially overlooked. Case studies demonstrate how optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a helpful screening tool or can identify retinal and optic nerve disease (Stargardt, foveal hypoplasia, RP, ON atrophy, etc.).

Description: This course on ocular motility will give a brief overview of the anatomy, physiology and function of the six extraocular muscles for proper eye alignment. Fusion, suppression, misaligned eyes (such as tropias and phorias) and resulting strabismus will be discussed. The means of detecting and measuring these conditions using cover/uncover testing, Hirschberg technique, prisms and the maddox rod will be demonstrated. The IJCAHPO Learning Systems will be used to demonstrate testing procedures.
