This dog has glaucoma – what do I need to know and do?
In this webinar we will discuss canine glaucoma – discovering that it is not a simple disease but a complex problem with many potential causes which will have an impact on our approach to treatment. So, we will look at examples of acute and chronic glaucoma in the dog and reflect on the primary and secondary aetiologies before considering how best to approach management. An understanding of the mechanisms for the production, flow and drainage of aqueous from the eye is necessary to fully appreciate these different types of glaucoma. Illustrations of the different clinical presentations will be included together with mention of the breed predispositions to glaucoma which we encounter. We will concentrate on medical management and how to assess response to treatment but will briefly mention the surgical options available.
By the end of the webinar you should be more confident in diagnosing the condition and understand what you need to do for the patient.
