Webcast Helps Physicians Learn About Ocular Complications of Systemic Disease

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Webcast Helps Physicians Learn About Ocular Complications of Systemic Disease. It has been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. That may or may not be true but the eyes can be the windows to disease. Sometimes, it is the ocular findings that are the first clue to an underlying systemic disease. Other times, a known systemic disease may alert the physician about the risks of important ocular complications. The ophthalmoscope allows you to examine structures you can’t otherwise see. For example, the retinal arteries are the only arteries that are easily visible non-invasively. Today on MedNet21, we’re going to see how the eye can be affected by many common systemic diseases. My guest is Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, Dr. Carla Ford.

However, with that comes the question of how can we most optimally use telemedicine? Today on MedNet, we’re going to update you on how you can most effectively apply telemedicine to your own clinical practice. Joining me today are two MedNet veterans from the Ohio State University.
