The most prevalent type of glaucoma in the United States is primary open-angle glaucoma, but there are a significant number of secondary open-angle and angle-closure glaucomas, which will go undiagnosed without careful clinical examination. As the disease course and management will often differ substantially, it is imperative that the correct diagnosis be made. This course provides an overview of the spectrum of primary and secondary angle-closure glaucomas.

Description: The secondary glaucomas are a group of disorders in which IOP is elevated due to abnormal ocular or systemic conditions and encompass a substantial number of glaucoma cases. This course provides the knowledge needed to effectively manage patients with these conditions.

There are several conditions that have optic nerve structural and/or functional changes that mimic those of chronic glaucoma. These conditions may threaten vision or life and must be differentiated from glaucoma so appropriate treatment may be provided, or in the case of those that are benign, aggressive treatment can be avoided. This course presents the most prevalent conditions that mimic glaucoma and illustrates both the glaucomatous and non-glaucomatous features of the conditions so an accurate diagnosis can be made.
