Seminar Review: Microsurgical Techniques in Glaucoma – New Devices and Older Plumbing
4 July 2016
“This one day seminar chaired by Mr Mohit Gupta and Mr Keith Barton was relevant and informative. The various speakers were engaging and passionate about this subspecialty and taught the practical day to day clinical skills required in successfully managing the surgical aspects of glaucoma.
As a general ophthalmologist it has kept me aware of the devices and various modalities now being used to meet the challenge of this blinding condition. While trabeculectomy still has it role, the diversity of aqueous shunts, non penetrating techniques, and the instrumentation for by-passing the trabecular meshwork has shown their worth. External and suprachoroidal drainage techniques and the manipulation of the ciliary body has added to the armamentarium for management modalities. The day ended providing us with a view as to what we can expect in the future and to that end I look forward to next year’s meeting.”
