The Management of Glaucoma: Structure and Function

Description

OCT is transforming diagnosis and measurement of treatment of efficacy in glaucoma. Even though standard automated perimetry (SAP) has been used as the gold standard for diagnosis and assessment of progression in glaucoma, many patients may show substantial structural change despite absence of detectable or significant changes on SAP. These structural changes may be detected by OCT. OCT is becoming the most common mode of imaging for evaluating the optic nerve head (ONH), retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), and macular thickness. Now, OCT is one of the most important instruments for management of glaucoma patients.

We invite investigators to contribute high quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances on glaucomatous structural and functional changes. Original, high-quality contributions that are not yet published or that are not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences are sought.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Detecting glaucomatous structural change by OCT
  • Diagnosis of glaucoma by OCT and SAP
  • Detecting glaucoma progression by SAP
  • Detecting glaucoma progression by OCT
  • Detecting glaucoma progression by SAP and OCT
  • Management of glaucoma by OCT
  • Optic disc photography
  • OCT angiography
  • Short wave-automated perimetry (SWAP)
  • Pattern ERG
  • Ocular blood flow parameters and choroidal thickness
  • Contrast sensitivity, chromatic vision, and reading ability
