Activity Description and Purpose
Optic neuritis presents as acute, sometimes painful, vision loss, and can be a presenting sign of a wide variety of unrelated diseases. Although optic neuritis is often attributed to multiple sclerosis and treated as such, another important and underrecognized cause is neuromyelitis spectrum disorder (NMOSD). NMOSD has a more aggressive course, and often causes irreversible blindness if not recognized and treated appropriately within days of symptom onset. In this interprofessional webcast, experts in optometric and neurologic assessment and treatment of NMOSD discuss best practices in diagnosis and referral of patients with possible NMOSD as well as clinical data supporting 3 newly approved long-term suppressive treatments specifically targeting immunologic pathways altered by NMOSD autoantibodies. The desired results of this activity are to increase awareness of NMOSD among optometrists and support timely identification and referral of patients with suspected NMOSD.
