During this live webinar, we discuss the role of using prism to alleviate diplopia. We will first describe the testing used to evaluate a diplopic patient. Next, we will use a step-wise approach to investigate the etiology of the double vision which will determine what type of prism to utilize. The advantages of permanent (ground-in), temporary (Fresnel) and occlusion will be addressed. Finally, cases will be used to illustrate how to prescribe prism for common neuro-ophthalmic and neurologic disorders including cranial nerve palsies, thyroid eye disease and neuro-degenerative disease.
