Neera+Kapoor+course.jpg

A day-long course, Evidence-based Management of Vision Deficits Following Mild to Moderate Brain Injury, will be presented by one of the leading researchers and clinicians in the field, Neera Kapoor, OD, MS, FAAO, FCOVD-A.

From the course poster:

By the end of the course, learners will be able to identify:

  • the common sensorimotor vision conditions evident following mild and moderate TBI using the associated vision terminology.

  • the equipment needed and protocol for evidence-based high yield vision screening.

  • updated research studies supporting the presence of, and treatment options for common vision conditions following TBI.

  • the principal underlying neurology of the common sensorimotor vision conditions following mild and moderate TBI, as well as the relation between presenting symptoms and ADLs.

  • home-based and/or in-office treatment options for common sensorimotor vision conditions and be able to apply them to one’s practice.

The course will be in Alexandria, Virginia, at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital, 2501 Parkers Lane. The course runs from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm; the fee for the course is $125. To register, contact Ashley Meadows: ashley.meadows@inova.org or 703.664.7491.
