Series 1: Glaucoma and Optic Neuropathies
1.1: Optic Nerve Head assessment
28-29 July 2017 (Friday 12 noon - Saturday 3pm)
School of Health Professions, Peninsula Allied Health Centre, Plymouth University
This Masterclass will focus on optic nerve head (ONH) damage in glaucoma, idiopathic intracranial hypertension and papilloedema, anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy and optic neuritis. We will discuss the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the ONH and associated retinal tissues, primary and secondary signs of ONH damage, types of glaucoma damage (focal, diffuse, senile, and myopic), and how to measure and document disease progression. A central theme of this Masterclass is clinical imaging of ONH and parapapillary retina through optical coherence tomography and stereo colour photography. Pre-course material (~5 h preparation) will be distributed in early July. CET points will be available (TBC). For registration (£100, reduced for students and trainees) email
Professor Paul Artes (closing date, 1 July).
