Corneal and other ocular manifestations are features of many lysosomal storage diseases, and so you can play an important role in helping to diagnose these genetic disorders.
The glaucoma surgery armamentarium has increased in recent years to include several alternatives to trabeculectomy with potential safety advantages.
Visual field testing can be frustrating for patients, but it should remain a core component of patient care because it provides essential information about glaucoma progression.
The prevalence of non-adherence with IOP-lowering medications underscores the need for optometrists to frequently re-assess medication use in glaucoma patients and consider therapies that will enable compliance and prevent it from becoming an efficacy-limiting issue.
Research investigating the epidemiology of IOP-lowering medication use in the U.S. population will hopefully suggest targets for efforts designed to improve medication access and patient care, one expert says.
Corneal staining is a useful differential diagnostic tool, but one that is sometimes misunderstood.
B-scan ultrasound is very useful technology for imaging and diagnosing posterior segment pathology.
Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography is an ideal tool for retinal layer-by-layer analysis and is revolutionizing the identification and localization of various retinal pathologies.
Researchers explore retinal curvature and neural asymmetries with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography
Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography is demonstrating itself to be useful tool for measuring retinal shape and cone photoreceptor density across the retina.
