Watch the Webinar

Topic: Applications and Limitations of Imaging Endpoints
Expert: Jeffrey M. Liebmann, MD

Why a webinar?

From the comfort of your own home or office and accessible from any device, we welcome you to broaden your knowledge on the Applications and Limitations of Imaging Endpoints.

The WGA is excited to start with webinars as a way to  improve the interaction between young ophthalmologists/glaucoma specialists and the WGA leadership. This is an opportunity to improve education and at the same time advance the discussion of new ideas that will tailor how glaucoma will be diagnosed, monitored and treated in the upcoming years.

If you’re not familiar with a webinar, it is a seminar presented online, similarly to lectures presented at meetings. They have an interactive format and can accommodate conflicts in schedule.

Topic: Applications and Limitations of Imaging Endpoints

This 50-minute webinar will start with an introductory presentation on the topic of 30 minutes by Jeffrey M. Liebmann, MD, followed by an online group discussion with all attending as well as a Q&A with Dr. Liebmann.

Joining this webinar is completely free, as part of the core purpose of the World Glaucoma Association to eliminate glaucoma-related disability worldwide.
