About NORA2020

The NORA annual conference is a premier event for eye care and other health care professionals who provide rehabilitative services to individuals who have suffered a traumatic brain injury.

In line with our continued commitment toward advancing professional knowledge and understanding of Neuro- Optometric Rehabilitative care and encouraging strong working relationships among professionals, the NORA 2020 online conference brings together key opinion leaders from optometry and other specialties.

You can earn up to 17 COPE-approved CE credits from leading experts with all new presentations, without leaving home.

In response to member feedback, this year, we are very excited to announce the addition of a course designed to provide allied therapy professionals with a foundational understanding of the role of neuro-optometric rehabilitation for vision disorders associated with concussion, stroke and other neurological disorders.

We are also offering two courses designed for staff members that may be of interest to optometrists who are looking to add a neuro component to their office, as well.

ENDURING COPE ID: Pending

Visual Snow Syndrome (VSS) includes both visual (e.g., palinopsia) and non-visual (e.g., tremor) based problems. But the main symptom, visual snow, is the perception of “snow”, dots, pixelated fuzz, bubbles, and/or television monitor “static” in the visual field foreground.

For some patients it is mildly debilitating, whereas for others so debilitating that it interferes with their activities of daily living. As with other functional visual conditions, affected patients go from provider to provider seeking relief of their symptoms, but are told that nothing can be done.

Interestingly, patients with acquired brain injury who report vague subjective visual disturbances may actually be experiencing visual snow, but many clinicians are not aware of the questions to ask to further investigate for VSS. The purpose of this lecture is to present a protocol to help diagnose and treat the patient with VSS.

ADVANCED LASER APPLICATIONS FOR THE BRAINSTEM
Brandon Crawford, DC

Saturday, Sept 12, 2020, 4:15pm - 5:15pm EDT
Location: Virtual Room 1

Credit Hours: 1

In this one-hour module we will discuss the intricacies of how to laser the most difficult areas of the human brain - the brainstem. These areas house the most vital centers for our existence, yet many think that laser and light therapy just won’t penetrate deep enough to have an effect on brainstem function. The fact is that just is not true.

The truth is that there’s research demonstrating widespread affects within the brainstem when laser and light therapies are properly applied with the appropriate techniques and parameters. The information you will learn in this module is directly applicable to anyone that works with brainstem functions in their office. All techniques discussed and taught are both supported by the literature and clinical evidence.
SELF-CARE AND BURNOUT PREVENTION IN THE COVID-19 ERA
Mana K. Ali, PhD

Saturday, Sept 12, 2020, 5:20pm - 6:20pm EDT
Location: Virtual Room 1

Rehabilitation psychologists, often within teams, assess and treat cognitive, emotional, and functional difficulties, and help people to overcome barriers to participation in life activities.

The uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic is enduring. Patients, as well as health care professionals and staff members are still navigating the normal overwhelm and stress inherent in a pandemic. How do you know if you or your employees are too overwhelmed or stressed?

While it can feel counterintuitive in such an uncertain and demanding time, health care professionals need to make time for their own coping and self-care. Psychological research has consistently shown that self-care not only benefits people’s health but enables them to carry out their jobs more effectively.

This talk will highlight symptoms of burnout, elicit resilience, and provide strategies for self-care during this unprecedented time.

Syntonics (Optometric Phototherapy) is a valuable and powerful tool in the optometric care of the patient with acquired brain injury. Although it has been around almost as long as vision therapy, syntonics has only recently gained favor as an effective treatment for TBI patients.

This course will cover the basics of syntonics and will discuss its role in optometric TBI care. Topics to be covered include the history and theory behind optometric phototherapy, testing and treatment protocols, the physiological effects of light, and the Basic Syndrome approach to case management. How to incorporate syntonics into your rehabilitation practice will also be discussed. Throughout the program cases will be used to illustrate key points.

NEUROPLASTICITY IS THE KEY TO VISION REHABILITATION AFTER TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY
Tina Dang Aldana, MA, OD, FAAO

Sunday, Sept 13, 2020, 2:40pm - 3:40pm EDT

ENDURING COPE ID: Pending

Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change and adapt throughout an individual’s life. The brain rewires itself in response to injury, which is why some people suffer from post-concussion symptoms; but the brain also has the ability to remodel itself in order to mitigate neurological dysfunction.

In this presentation, we will discuss activity-dependent plasticity which forms the basis for learning, to enhance comprehension, to improve motor function and retain memories. It is the key to successful vision rehabilitation.
UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF CEREBELLAR AND PERIPHERAL VESTIBULAR DISORDERS UTILIZING OCULAR MOVEMENTS

This presentation will discuss how conditions of the cerebellum present clinically and how ocular function can be a valuable indicator. There will also be a comparison and contrast with the most common vestibular disorders as well.

There will be in-depth discussion on neurological pathway integration and a significant amount of it will be done via demonstration on stage so that viewers will have more than just a lecture, but a clinical experience.
NEURO-OPTOMETRIC REHABILITATION OF NEURO-PROCESSING DISORDERS: THE LATEST ON MS, PARKINSON’S DISEASE AND DEMENTIA

Neuro-processing Disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease are increasing rapidly in our population and will be creating a catastrophic effect on our health care system in the next 20 years.

Early diagnosis has long been an issue with these diseases but new research has shown the possibility of using bio-markers in the vision system to evaluate future risk. These bio-markers include changes to eye movements and especially changes to OCT findings.

This lecture will provide the audience with clinical pearls to help evaluate patients with these diseases and how to predict risk of future neuro-processing disorders. This lecture will review clinical signs, testing paradigms, and rehabilitation pearls for these neuro-processing disorders.
