Drs Tsai and Schlotzer-Schrehardt also each give two lectures in the Current Concepts sessions of the main meeting.

In addition, there was a Glaucoma Clinical Skills Transfer session, organized by Drs Yvonne Buys and Rob Schertzer, on glaucoma imaging.

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the physics behind the different imaging modalities for the optic nerve and┬ánerve fibre layer
  • Decide which imaging modalities would be most appropriate for their practice
  • Recognize some of the potential limitations of each device
  • Interpret the data looking for glaucoma progression

We hope you enjoyed the meeting and will post more details about this and future meetings.
