Here, you will learn about Standard Automated Perimetry (SAP) and its relationship to glaucoma. First, you will learn why perimetry is necessary in the management of glaucoma. Next, you’ll go through some basic concepts of perimetry. After that, you’ll learn how to select a test, including non-standard perimetric tests, and the importance of constancy of tests for follow-up. Then, you’ll learn about the glaucomatous visual field. In particular, how to interpret the visual field and how to analyse events and trends.
Module 1: Basics of gonioscopy
Gonioscopy is an important diagnostic examination in ophthalmology.
Here, you will learn about the Principles of Gonioscopy. First, you’ll find a brief description about the importance of Gonioscopy. Then, you’ll find a description of different types of lenses and how to perform Gonioscopy. Finally, you’ll learn about the different grading systems and how to describe the findings.
Module 2: Evaluation of anterior chamber angle abnormalities in glaucoma
Here, you will find how to evaluate anterior chamber angle abnormalities in glaucoma in a gonioscopy.
First, there is a brief description of what a gonioscopy is and what to look for. Then, you will find a description of what to see in a normal open angle, and finally, what to see in different goniopathologies.
Here, you will learn about Intraocular Pressure (IOP) and its relationship to glaucoma.
First, you can go through the basics of IOP. Then, you will find different Tonometers with brief descriptions. Next, there are some statistics of normal and abnormal IOP. Finally, you will read about fluctuation and variations of IOP and their clinical significance.
Glaucoma prevalence studies have identified that up to half of all glaucoma patients are not aware that they have this disease. Furthermore, a significant proportion of these ‘missed’ patients have seen an eye care professional previously. Why is the diagnosis of glaucoma missed? Here you will learn about the Optic Nerve Head clinical examination. This may produce the only information to alert the clinician about a sight threatening diagnosis.
