Week 27 Overview
In this week, you’ll be continuing through Neuro-ophthalmology if you’re following the AAO’s plan, and continuing Last Minute Optics and Refractive Surgery if you’re following ours.
The AAO Plan:
There are several small sections in this reading that are important to know – nystagmus, pupils, and diplopia being the notable ones. Transient vision loss is also clinically important. Higher cortical visual dysfunctions are tough to understand conceptually, partially because the anatomy is a bit complicated, and also because we just don’t really understand them all that well. Thankfully, it’s not as important to know.
Ophthalmology Review’s Plan:
Keep working through the optics and refractive surgery sections! Just a few short weeks left!
