Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Ophthalmology Volume 51, Issue 01: Assessing Approaches to Management of Glaucoma.
The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Prescribe appropriate first-line medical treatments on the basis of the efficacy and side-effect profiles of the available drug classes.
2. Select adjunctive treatments, taking into consideration the different levels of intraocular pressure reduction at night and dosing convenience.
3. Evaluate the evidence comparing the efficacy and safety of the Ahmed and Baerveldt devices for glaucoma.
4. Optimize the use of visual field testing and the interpretation of the test results to identify glaucoma as early as possible and to accurately monitor disease progression.
5. Perform visual field testing with the optimal technology to provide the highest quality and most reliable results for each patient.
The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
