Rapid Fire Surgical Management of Glaucoma

Richard Trevino, OD, Bloomington, IN
This course will review recent progress in surgical management of glaucoma. Selective laser trabeculoplasty is very popular, but newer forms of laser therapy, such as micropulse diode and pattern scanning trabeculoplasty are gaining acceptance. Minimally invasive surgery continues to rapidly evolve. Laser iridotomy is standard treatment for angle-closure glaucoma, but recently there has been a move toward lens extraction in many patients. There is growing recognition that headache in children may signal angle closure. These children may benefit from iridotomy or other surgical interventions.
