Ophthalmology Update for OPTOMETRISTS

14th Mar 2018 6:30pm-8:30pm at Royston Hospital Seminar Rooms

Session 1: Angling for Information: The Rewards of Gonioscopy

Presented by Dr. John Beaumont

Gonioscopy is the imaging of the angle of the anterior chamber. The morphology of the angle is important as risk determent for angle closure glaucoma. Developmental and acquired pathology is also significant both in the diagnosis of glaucoma and other ocular conditions. Recent developments in anterior segment imaging have led to improved understanding of the dynamics of the anterior chamber angle. Gonioscopy contributes to the diagnosis of neoplasia in the anterior chamber and although uncommon early detection is important.

 Learning Outcomes

  1. An improved performance of gonioscopy.
  2. An improved understanding of the angle of the anterior chamber, methods of description, and relationship with angle closure glaucoma.
  3. Improved recognition of pathology of the iris.
