Description
  • In undergraduate and ophthalmology residency programs, due to the wide variety of subjects to be covered, extensive training in diagnosis and therapy of glaucoma has not been possible.
  • With the advent of computerised visual field analysis, it is imperative to train practising ophthalmologists in their interpretation and application in clinical practice. In addition, critical evaluation of the optic disc and retinal nerve fibre layer are gaining significance in glaucoma.
  • The training helps the doctor to diagnose glaucoma and treat before loss of productive and useful visual function.
  • Aravind Eye Hospital has well-trained faculty in its Glaucoma service. The organisation runs a long-term  fellowship program in glaucoma for 24 months.
