Innovations In Glaucoma: Next Generation Technology, Medications, and Delivery 
COPE #71662-GL
Event #121267


Advances in glaucoma diagnostics and management continue to evolve at a rapid pace. In order to continue to care for glaucoma patients at a high level it is imperative that innovation continues in the glaucoma space. The focus of this course is to discuss new advancements in glaucoma diagnostic technology, what’s new in the glaucoma pipeline, and what the future holds. *Video was recorded at our Virtual Island Eyes Conference on January 30, 2021.

  • Gaining knowledge in regards to novel glaucoma drug delivery devices and the role they will play in treating our glaucoma patients. Understanding the mechanism of action, how they are utilized, and how to manage post-operatively.
  • Gain knowledge in advancements in telemedicine including virtual reality visual field testing and artificial intelligence.
  • Gaining knowledge in new topical glaucoma medications and the ideal patient types that these medications will help. Understand the mechanism of action and also the adverse events that can occur.
  • Gaining knowledge in advancements of visual field technology, specifically new programs that help to identify glaucoma at earlier stages, and catch unique presentations of the disease.
  • Gaining knowledge in advancements in OCT technology, including OCT-A and ganglion cell layer analysis. Understand how these new technologies will improve diagnosis and management for glaucoma patients.
  • Gaining knowledge about new technology to help obtain more accurate IOP measurements for glaucoma patients. Also gain knowledge that IOP plays in the role of glaucoma patients, including night-time IOP changes and the balance between IOP and intracranial pressure.
