Neuro-Ophthalmology Techniques of Examination for Non-neuro-ophthalmologists – NOTE – produced by NANOS (The North American Neuro-ophthalmology Society), is designed to teach, and improve implementation of basic neuro-ophthalmic examination techniques and increase confidence in practitioners who use these skills to evaluate patients with visual and neurological complaints.

In developing NOTE, NANOS surveyed a variety of healthcare practitioners and trainees to assess feedback about techniques they would most value. NOTE presents 62 disorders and conditions using text, audio, PowerPoint slides, PDFs, and 99 videos. Examples of topics examined are:

  • • Anisocoria
  • • Distance acuity and pinhole examination
  • • Pupillary size measurement in light and dark
  • • Common eye movement abnormalities
  • • Non-cognitive assessment
  • • Clinical examination of mental status
  • • Facial symmetry
