Learning Objectives

  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to recognise the features of normal tension glaucoma and understand the risk factors that contribute to this condition.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to understand the methods for determining accurate intra-ocular pressure measurements and ways to estimate 24-hour intra-ocular pressure control
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the primary treatment options for normal tension glaucoma including medical therapy and laser trabeculoplasty. Participants are expected to understand the pros and cons of each approach and be able to describe the possible complications associated with each.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the clinical features of pseudoexfoliation syndrome and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma. Participants will have an understanding of how treatments to lower intra-ocular pressure in pseudoexfoliation syndrome/glaucoma are less effective compared to other types of glaucoma.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to understand the risks associated with performing cataract surgery in an eye with pseudoexfoliation syndrome/glaucoma and what steps can be taken to reduce these risks.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the causes of reduced acuity following cataract surgery and describe methods for determining each cause.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the clinical features of Sturge-Weber syndrome and the ocular manifestations of this condition.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to understand the mechanism of glaucoma in Sturge-Weber syndrome and how this impacts response to treatment.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the risks of performing glaucoma filtration surgery in an eye with Sturge-Weber Syndrome and the steps that can be taken to reduce these risks.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to recognise the clinical presentation of blebitis and bleb-associated endophthalmitis and describe the emergency treatment of these conditions.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the gonioscopic features of plateau iris syndrome.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the management pathway of a patient with angle closure and plateau iris syndrome.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the clinical features of aqueous misdirection syndrome and the goals of treatment.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the clinical features of non-proliferative and proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the clinical features of rubeotic glaucoma.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the risks of performing cataract surgery in an eye with diabetic retinopathy and how to avoid them
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the causes and mechanisms that leads to rubeosis and how this can be treated.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the mechanism of action of anti-VEGF treatment, its mode of application and the possible side-effects and complications.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to recognise the mechanisms of elevated intra-ocular pressure after a blunt trauma to the eye.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the other injuries to the eye may occur following blunt trauma.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the emergency management of an eye that has sustained a blunt trauma.
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the different ways in which a cataract can cause elevated intra-ocular pressure and how these may be distinguished clinically
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the mechanism of action, dosing, efficacy and side-effects and interactions of all classes of glaucoma eye drops
  • At the completion of the CPD activity, participants should be able to describe the risks of performing cataract surgery in an eye that has previously sustained a blunt trauma.
