GLAUCOMA MASQUERADERS
 

The Northern Nevada Optometric Society invites you to our first CE event of 2023 THIS SATURDAY, January 28, 2023.

The event will be a hybrid event - in-person for those in the greater Reno-Sparks-Carson City area and online for the rest of the state.


SPEAKER:

Daniel Epshtein, OD, FAAO
 

COURSE INFORMATION: 

Without a gold standard biomarker in glaucoma diagnosis, distinguishing glaucoma patients from glaucoma suspects is often difficult. This clinical question is made even more complicated when patients present with other ocular conditions that may mimic glaucoma. This course will use a case-based approach to help attendees learn to distinguish glaucoma patients from glaucoma masqueraders. The course will focus on auxiliary diagnostic tests such as macular OCT scans, optic nerve OCT scans, visual fields, and pupillary testing to distinguish glaucoma masqueraders from glaucoma.
