Description

Optometrists are often the doctors detecting the first signs of patients with neovascular glaucoma (NVG). This course aims to update the practicing optometrist’s knowledge of NVG by reviewing the underlying ischemic processes that can result in NVG development, how to recognize the earliest signs of NVG, and how to select the best management options available for NVG. A review of the latest thinking on surgical management options is also discussed. Lastly, an update on the latest research as well as the potential future treatment options of NVG are discussed, specifically, topical anti-VEGF agents and the role of pigment epithelial derived factor in NVG.

The video stopped playing approx. 15 minutes into the lecture. Audio was still available, but the speaker spoke very quickly and it was very difficult to follow. I closed the program and re-opened the site as well as the lecture and the same thing happened the second time.

Dr Elizabeth Wikman (31 Dec 2016)
Excellent course! So much information in just one hour credit. I learned a lot! Would love more courses by Dr. Borgman. My only complaint is that I could not get the video to stream even though I was able to hear the audio (and I was able to visualize the lecture notes). Not sure if it was my browser, but would have liked to see the course "live". Thank you for offering this!!
