The focus of the 50th Sally Letson Symposium is neuro-ophthalmology. The program will address current best practices in diagnosis and management of diseases of the afferent and efferent visual pathways, with an international faculty of experts utilizing multiple educational formats, including didactic lectures, panel discussions, case-based interactive presentations, and debate/controversy sessions.
