Treatment Options for Ocular Anterior Surface Disease
  • Disease Management
  • Attendance - General Attendance
  • COPE - Optometrists
$0.00 Ocular Anterior Surface Disease or dry eye syndrome affects nearly 16 million Americans and can be a common and chronic problem for adults, especially for those of advanced age, causing symptoms that interfere with eye comfort, function and quality of life. Competent evaluation to determine the etiology of dry eye syndrome is necessary for successful symptom management as therapeutic regimens must be specific to the underlying causes to be effective. This activity will examine the multiple parts of eye anatomy, the dysfunction of which may contribute to dry eye syndrome, including the tear film, ocular anterior surface and Meibomian gland, and identify complications that can result when dry eye is left untreated. Importantly, a thorough review of optimal treatment regimens will be provided, as well as updates on newer and emerging targeted treatments, with a focus on providing relief and preventing further damage to the eye.
Review of Risk Factors in the Identification of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma
  • Disease Management
  • Attendance - General Attendance
  • COPE - Optometrists
$0.00 This activity will examine risk factors for glaucoma that will assist health care professionals (HCPs) in the early identification of this condition in general primary eye care practice. Individual risk factors will be discussed, and pertinent literature will be reviewed to provide insight into how certain factors in combination, such as Krukenberg spindles, homogeneous trabecular meshwork pigmentation and iris transillumination defects can indicate an increased risk and alert HCPs to the presence of this disorder. A new tool will be introduced to help recommend when specific glaucoma testing is indicated.
