Introduction - The Other Eye

You must have the Adobe Flash Player installed to view this player.

One should always examine both eyes. This can be very helpful in patients with presumed pupillary block angle closure in one eye. If corneal edema precules a view of the iridocorneal angle looking at the fellow eye can be instructive. If the opposite eye has a wide-open angle one might need to reconsider diagnosis. Similarly, angle recession can be difficult to differentiate from the deep anterior chambers of highly myopic eyes. Comparing the two eyes can help to make the appropriate diagnosis.

Iowa Glaucoma Curriculum

IowaGlaucomaCurriculumsI wanted to let you know about a new website that I have built. The site is the Iowa Glaucoma Curriculum. It is aimed at residents who want an image-heavy introduction to glaucoma. The curriculum consists of 50 lectures that It break glaucoma into fifty bite-sized pieces averaging 14 minutes in length (range 4 to 37 minutes). In total the curriculum is just under 12 hours long.

It is highly visual with >900 images and >90 movie clips.

The address is: http://curriculum.iowaglaucoma.org/

The development of the new site explains – in part - the lack of new material for gonioscopy.org.
