Description
The advanced topics symposium will include talks on various cutting edge issues in glaucoma. These range from early detection and monitoring of glaucoma by understanding macular involvement in glaucoma to an update on the latest in glaucoma implants for the surgical management of glaucoma. No longer the realm of science fiction, speakers will discuss the latest on neural regeneration with techniques involving rescue of dying ganglion cells and the current status of neuroprotection for glaucoma. The latest on the activation of residual vision after retina and brain damage will also be discussed. The theories on how genetic and environmental factors interact in the pathogenesis of glaucoma as well as the correlation of sleep position and asymmetry in glaucoma will be discussed.
