Online course: Neovascular Glaucoma

Free


Course Overview

Neovascular glaucoma (NVG) is a secondary angle-closure glaucoma that usually stems from retinal ischemia. It develops when abnormal blood vessels form in the retina and proliferate anteriorly towards the iris and iridocorneal angle, blocking the outflow of aqueous humor and leading to elevation of intraocular pressure and glaucomatous optic neuropathy. Though outcomes have improved in recent years with the development of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (anti-VEGF) treatments, NVG remains a disease that is often difficult to control and is associated with a poor prognosis.
