Piecing Together the Pressures of Glaucoma: IOP, ICP, EVP, OPP (COPE # 68985-GL)
Mitch Ibach, OD, FAAO, Justin Schweitzer, OD, FAAO
Glaucoma traditionally has been considered a one-pressure disease. Many of our glaucoma patients present with normal to low intraocular pressure and continue to progress. Evidence in the literature suggests that there likely are other factors contributing to the development and progression of glaucoma. This course will focus on the role of four pressures: intraocular pressure, intracranial pressure, episcleral venous pressure, and ocular perfusion pressure in the development and progression of glaucoma.
