The WGA Film Festival aims to put storytelling power in the hands of glaucoma experts and seeks to showcase the role of individuals and communities as champions for glaucoma prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
The film festival highlight from WGC-2019 of March is: Optic reconstructive surgery in treatment of acute angle closure.
Patients with acute angle closure often have paralytic mydriasis accompanied by neurotrophic changes of iris stroma. The decreased function of the iris diaphragm function leads to visual aberrations that compromise the vision related quality of life. In this video the authors describe a technique for reconstruction of the iris and mechanical opening of the anterior chamber angle.
