Examine the Inferior Angle

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

The inferior angle is the deepest and the most pigmented. Often the anatomy is most clearly defined in the inferior angle because the pigmentation highlights the posterior (pigmented) trabecular meshwork. Once the relationship between structures is established in the lower angle (superior mirror) this information can help the examiner with the interpretation of the remainder of the angle.

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.
