The Canadian Orthoptic Society
Friday 14 June 2013, 1300-1700
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Recognize and apply new techniques and methods to assess visual deficits in amblyopia.
- Demonstrate an understanding of tools required for a low vision assessment, and to describe conditions commonly requiring pediatric low vision assessment.
- Further define the orthoptist's role and challenges associated with the treatment of strabismus using botulinum toxin.
- Differentiate the roles of sensory fusion and motor fusion, and describe the role of binocular vision and its effect on alignment.
