What scares you scares me too

This module will consist of interactive discussion of clinical cases, allowing participants to discuss some challenging clinical scenarios in glaucoma. Participants will have a chance to review common features of glaucoma as opposed to other optic neuropathies, discuss unusual cases of inflammatory glaucoma, the diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas of glaucoma in high myopic individuals, and the challenges of dealing with pseudo-exfoliative glaucoma, among others. The clinical cases presented in this module were selected to generate discussion, with several particularities of the cases highlighting the “beyond the evidence” general theme for this program, where no clear right or wrong answer exists.
