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

49 year-old woman with twenty-year history of granulomatous uveitis OD. Full work-up negative for an underlying etiology. She developed diffuse crystals in anterior chamber and angle. This was presumed to be due to her elevated serum cholesterol (366) and triglyceride (450) in the face of a compromised blood-aqueous barrier.

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.


You can also download this as an iBook from the iBook app for the Mac, iPad or iPhone. Search for "Iowa Glaucoma Curriculum" or “Alward.”


I hope that you find it useful.
