This 18 year-old man was first seen at age 4 months with unilateral buphthalmos and Haab striae. He had near total cupping in his left eye. The patient underwent a trabeculotomy at age 4 months. The video is at age 18. At this time he had an intraocular pressure on no medications of 14 mmHg and healthy optic nerve (C/D 0.25 vs. 0.1 OD).

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.
