Nathan M. Radcliffe, MD, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, and Director of Glaucoma Service, Weill Cornell Medical College; Assistant Attending Ophthalmologist, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY, presented on Glaucoma and the Cornea and Microinvasive Surgery for Glaucoma
The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and management of glaucoma. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Recognize the importance of the health and properties of the cornea when managing glaucoma.
2. Use corneal hysteresis to determine risk for development or progression of glaucoma and response to treatment.
3. Inform patients appropriately before obtaining consent for glaucoma surgery with tubes or trabeculectomy.
4. Choose among minimally invasive and traditional approaches to glaucoma surgery on the basis of the risks and benefits for the individual patient.
5. Learn and perform surgery to insert the iStent device with intraoperative gonioscopy.
The original programs were presented by Nathan M. Radcliffe, MD, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, and Director of Glaucoma Service, Weill Cornell Medical College; Assistant Attending Ophthalmologist, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, New York, NY.
