Course Description: Dr. Simonson and Dr. Hellerstein will share clinical pearls in treating vertical diplopia. This course will discuss eye alignment, prism prescribing, and recommended vision therapy techniques to decrease symptoms of double vision. The goal is of this course will be to utilize compensatory and therapeutic strategies to improve fusion skills for patients with vertical strabismus and diplopia. During this workshop, attendees will complete hands-on training on clinical testing for vertical misalignment. Stations will include Maddox rod, Modified Thorington, laser-assisted Hess Lancaster, and other clinical techniques to measure the amplitude of misalignment and fusional ability. This training will help vision therapists understand the direction and amplitude of strabismus. Attendees will also experience induced vertical misalignment and determine optimal prism perscription based on findings. In addition, vision training concepts and procedures will be performed to increase the accuracy, stability, and concomitancy of eye alignment. Learn new techniques and appropriate procedure modifications.
