Purpose/Relevance: Video demonstration of unusual signs, diagnostics of diseases, and surgical procedures in pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus, with an emphasis on strabismus since we are joint with ISA this AAPOS meeting.
Target Audience: Pediatric Ophthalmologists and Strabismologists, Orthoptists, and Ophthalmologists in training.
Current Practice: Video offers the opportunity to demonstrate clinical signs, as well as complex (and even difficulties encountered in ‘common’) surgical procedures that are difficult to describe fully in text or with still photographs or diagrams. Some ‘common’ but difficult surgical scenarios can be greatly eased by simple ‘pearls’ while other, more rare conditions and certain surgical approaches are seldom seen outside tertiary referral centers, but are of great interest to all who care for children and patients young and old with strabismus.
Best Practice: This workshop allows the attendees to view videos of rare signs and both common and complex surgical procedures, presented and explained by the ophthalmologist who recorded them first-hand, with discussion by an expert panel and the audience.
Expected Outcomes: This workshop is intended to increase the attendee’s level of familiarity with, and confidence in examining, diagnosing, and planning treatment for these unusual clinical scenarios.
Format: Six experienced pediatric ophthalmologists and strabismologists will present and discuss videos of signs, diseases, and surgical procedures. Panelists will discuss the differential diagnosis and potential treatment options. Audience participation is encouraged.
Summary: Demonstration of classical or rare signs, diseases, surgical procedures using high quality video presentations.
