Brad Sutton, OD, FAAO
Herpetic Eye Disease
(1 hour; Category: Systemic/Ocular Disease, COPE # 32160-SD)
This course will cover the natural history, epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of herpes simplex ocular infections. Multiple herpetic complications are discussed, including blepharoconjunctivitis, corneal epithelial disease, corneal stromal disease, corneal endothelial disease, and uveitis.
Retinal Vascular Disease
(2 hours, optional exam available; Category: Posterior Segment Disease, COPE # 34068-PS)
This course covers many non-diabetic retinal vascular diseases in detail. The etiology, natural history, diagnosis, and management of several conditions are discussed. Covered conditions include ocular ischemic syndrome, hypertensive retinopathy, Sickle cell retinopathy, Coat’s disease, Eale’s disease, arterial occlusions, and venous occlusions.
Cancer and the Eye
(2 hours, optional exam available; Category: Anterior Segment Disease, COPE # 28610-AS)
This course covers both systemic cancer principles and epidemiology as well as several types of ocular malignancies. Uveal metastatic tumors, primary uveal tumors, choroidal nevi, melanocytoma, and retinoblastoma are covered in detail. An emphasis is placed upon the differential diagnosis and management of each ocular neoplasm.
Picture of Brad Sutton Dr. Brad Sutton received both his undergraduate and Optometry degrees from Indiana University. Upon graduating, he accepted a one-year residency in Ocular Disease and Surgical Co-management at Omni Eye Services in Memphis, Tennessee, where he remained with the center as its director for five years before returning to IU. He is heavily involved in patient care, clinical teaching, and lecturing in the ocular disease courses. He is currently the Chief of Service at the Indianapolis Eye Care Center.

Dr. Sutton’s main areas of clinical interest include ocular disease and surgical management. He has given over 175 continuing education lectures on topics related to ocular disease at the local, state, national, and international level. Dr. Sutton was named the Young Optometrist of the Year for the state of Tennessee in 1997-1998 and received the same award (President’s Citation) for the state of Indiana in 2001.
Eileen Gable, OD, FAAO
Recognizing and Managing Child Abuse in the Clinical Setting
(1 hour; Category: Functional Vision/Pediatrics, COPE #28562-FV)
This course reviews the ocular findings associated with physical abuse and other classifications of abuse. The lecture focuses on appropriate patient management: differentiating abuse from other pathology, treating the ocular insult, protecting those at risk, making appropriate referrals and reporting evidence to the appropriate authorities.
Primary Eye Care in the Global Setting
(2 hours; Category: General Optometry, COPE #35021-GO)
This course will define the clinical practice of primary eye care from a global perspective. Epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention will be discussed considering available resources and impacting the burden of visual impairment.
Neuro Grand Rounds
(1 hour; Category: Neuro-optometry, COPE #35485-NO)
This course highlights the relationship between vision and nervous system by presenting challenging cases of ocular manifestations of neurological and systemic disease. Cases demonstrate the need to recognize clinical findings indicative of nervous system disease.
Picture of Eileen Gable Dr. Gable is a graduate of the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. She completed a residency in Ocular Disease and Primary Eye Care at the Illinois Eye Institute, Illinois College of Optometry. She served as director of the Vision of Hope Health Alliance, a grant-funded medical outreach program of the Illinois Eye Institute for the uninsured of Chicago while reaching the academic rank of associate professor of optometry at the Illinois College of Optometry.
