Glaucoma & Complex Cataract Surgery Series 1 (CME)

Video presentation series on glaucoma and complex cataract surgeries and management of post-filtering surgeries complications 

Statement of Educational Need, Target Audience, and Learning Objectives:

Reading textbooks, papers, and attending didactic lectures are great resources to learn about managing complex cataract and glaucoma diseases and their postoperative complications, but observing the actual techniques on real patients is more educational. Additionally, surgical videos cut out all the unnecessary material in the books and papers and are less time consuming. Ophthalmologists do not always have opportunities to observe other surgeons performing surgeries after their residency and ophthalmologists do not always have up-to-date knowledge and strategies needed to update their practices regarding emerging surgical techniques.

The goal of this video series is to explain the preferred surgical techniques in a short period of time for ophthalmologists to implement them in their patient care system. The videos cover a diverse array of topics in cataract and glaucoma surgeries with the primary target audience being comprehensive ophthalmologists who routinely treat or refer the patients with the conditions covered in the videos. Ophthalmologists in glaucoma fellowship and the glaucoma specialist at the beginning of their career benefit form observing variety of conditions, complications, and surgical interventions discussed. The videos demonstrate:

(a)   Complex cataract and intraocular lens surgeries in glaucoma patients

(b)   Filtering surgeries (trabeculectomy, tube shunt, and xen stent)

(c)   Management of early and late postoperative complications of filtering surgeries

(d)   Bleb related-complications management

At the end of the course, participants should be able to:

·       Articulate the steps of filtering surgeries.

·       Demonstrate the steps in managing the complications of the filtering surgeries.

·       Explain various surgical techniques in managing co-existing complex cataract and glaucoma.
