Target Audience

This online educational activity is directed towards general ophthalmologists and optometrists. Additional clinicians who may have the opportunity to diagnosis patients with neurotrophic keratitis will also be invited to participate.

Activity Overview

This video-based program is designed for health care professionals to explore the diagnosis and treatment of neurotropic keratitis (NK) through a unique perspective, putting the patient voice front and center. A patient with NK will share her experiences. Expert faculty will share commentary on NK etiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, efficacy and safety data of available therapies, and best practices for treatment of NK.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Describe the dysfunction of corneal sensory innervation that leads to NK, as compared to normal function
  • Apply testing strategies that provide prompt diagnosis and disease classification for patients with NK
  • Develop optimal treatment approaches for patients with NK that are individualized for their disease stage
  • Assess the effects of NK on patients’ quality of life
