Narrow Angles - Slit lamp only

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

This is a 51 year-old woman who presented with narrow angles diagnosed by her local ophthalmologist. She has no other known eye pathology. Her Van Herrick test shows extremely narrow angles with areas of apposition. Interestingly, this patient is myopic (-3.50 diopters). Primary pupillary block angle closure is quite uncommon in patients with myopia. This clip is filed under both Examples: Pupillary Block and Techniques for Difficult Angles: Van Herrick.

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.
