In nearly 75% of individuals who develop myasthenia gravis, the first symptoms relate to eye muscles.  Yet the hallmark of MG is variability. How can you treat vision symptoms that vary so much from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.?

The speaker at Conquer MG’s Spring Patient Meeting will be Thomas Mizen, MD, a neuro-ophthalmologist from Rush University Medical Center. He’ll explain how MG affects vision, the difference between generalized MG and ocular MG, and will comment on treatments that include medication, a ptosis crutch, and surgery. 

Your questions will be welcome.

This event is free to all and includes lunch.  A donation of $25 per person (or amount of your choice) would be appreciated to offset the cost of meal and video recording expenses.
