MS and the Eye
Elizabeth Steele, OD, Birmingham, AL

Together with our expertise in examining the physical appearance of the prelaminar optic nerve, the technology of spectral domain OCT allows ODs to have a crucial role in the diagnosis and management of multiple sclerosis.  It is well-known that based on autopsy studies and clinical examinations, most patients with MS suffer from optic neuritis at some point in their disease course.  This lecture will update attendees on current opinions in OCT’s role in early diagnosis, predicting disease progression and management of optic neuritis.
