“Headaches for Ophthalmologists”

Ophthalmologists are often the first to evaluate patients with headaches, eye pain, and headache-associated visual disturbances. However eye pain and visual disturbances are often neurological in origin, with some being medical emergencies. Many primary headache disorders have ophthalmic features, and secondary causes of headache frequently involve the visual system.

This intensive symposium is designed to provide the practising Ophthalmologist with a comprehensive and up to date practical guide to the diagnosis and management of headache.   It will define common headache conditions, their investigation and management.
