Course 14/18: Glaucoma – Part 1 & 2

Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world, and one of the few eye diseases that cuts across lines of economic status in geography: equally important and widespread in rich and poor countries, in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. However, due to the complexity of diagnosis and treatment, glaucoma has not always received the same level of attention as some other eye diseases within the VISION 2020 campaign.

This course aimed to better understand the current problem of glaucoma in the world, while acquainting participants with novel strategies to combat the disease in areas with limited resources, and remaining key programmatic questions.
