The focus of this meeting will be to update the comprehensive ophthalmologist as well as the glaucoma and anterior segment specialist and neuro-ophthalmologist on the latest in diagnosis, medical management, preoperative evaluation, surgical techniques, clinical outcomes, and postoperative complications management in the fields of glaucoma, anterior segment and neuro-ophthalmology, as well as research on future developments in these disciplines.
Glaucoma and optic neuropathies cause irreversible vision loss worldwide. Successful management of these complex diseases require skillful evaluation, medical treatment, and, when necessary, identifying the correct operative regimen and knowledgeable post-operative management. Recently, optical coherence tomography has become an important tool for diagnosing glaucoma and detecting glaucoma progression. New techniques for cataract surgery are changing the standard of care in the aging eye. This activity will increase understanding of the concepts and techniques necessary to correctly diagnose and treat patients with glaucoma, optic neuropathies, cataracts, and idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
