Learning Objectives

Friday Learning Objectives

DIAGNOSTIC UPDATES:

1)    Review updates in optic disc imaging technology and potential pitfalls in interpretation.

2)    Identify the role and use of corneal hysteresis in glaucoma assessment and management.

3)    Discern scenarios where ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) can be utilized in assessing angle or anterior segment pathology and interpret UBM images pertinent to glaucoma management.

MEDICAL AND LASER UPDATES:

1)    Discuss experience and clinical outcomes with new medication delivery options in glaucoma therapy.

2)    Share clinical experiences and techniques on recent glaucoma laser modalities including micropulse laser trabeculoplasty (MLT), micropulse cyclophotocoagulation (MP-CPC) and endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP).

TRABS AND TUBES – TECHNIQUES AND COMPLICATIONS MANAGEMENT

1)    Discuss and share various surgical techniques/innovations for traditional filtering glaucoma procedures (trabeculectomy and tube shunts).

2)    Review post-operative complications management for traditional glaucoma surgeries.

3)    Showcase challenging surgical videos with interactive group discussion of management approaches.

 

Saturday Learning Objectives

CURRENT CONCEPTS – HOW WE PRACTICE GLAUCOMA

1)    Examine the existing Canadian Ophthalmological Society glaucoma management. guidelines and identify areas in need of updates.

2)    Learn how video recording technology can be utilized and optimized in the operating room setting.

3)    Discuss the development and progress of the STOP Glaucoma program in Sub-Saharan Africa.

4)    Review the crucial elements of informed consent for medical and surgical glaucoma management.

TEAM PLAYER TIME: STICKY SCENARIOS FROM ANTERIOR AND POSTERIOR SEGMENTS

1)    Identify potential challenges and discuss approaches in managing special secondary glaucoma scenarios (e.g. zonulopathy, uveitis-glaucoma-hyphema syndrome).

2)    Review scenarios which require collaboration with retina specialists in managing glaucoma (e.g. intraocular pressure issues assocated with anti-VEGF injections or silicone oil).

MIGS SYMPOSIUM

1)    Compare the patient selection criteria, efficacy, access, surgical techniques and post-operative management with multiple microinvasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) options.

2)    Review management of challenging MIGS intra-operative and post-operative scenarios.
