Title Visual Symptoms and Movement Disorders: Establishing a Neuro-ophthalmology Clinic Designed for Patients with Movement Disorders (.pdf)
Creator Victoria S. Pelak, Erin L. Van Dok, Maureen A. Leehey
Subject Quality of Care, Visual Complaints and Movement Disorders, Multispecialty Neuro-Ophthalmology Clinic, Patient-Oriented Care, Cognitive Impairment
Description We aim to share knowledge gained with the development of a subspecialty clinic within neuro-ophthalmology for patients with visual complaints in the setting of a movement disorder, including: Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease (IPD), Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, dementia with Lewy Bodies, Parkinsonism, ataxia, and others. Barriers to the delivery of high-quality, neuro-ophthalmic care that is patient-centered include the multifactorial, fluctuating, and progressive nature of the visual symptoms and the need for extended appointments to accommodate fatigue and cognitive impairment. To address these barriers, we established a monthly neuro-ophthalmology clinic dedicated to patients with movement disorders.
