Full course description
Diagnosis of glaucoma and its progression can be a clinical challenge. Visual fields are a standard of care for screening and assessing change, but the tests often contain artifacts that can be misleading. This 1-hour, asynchronous CE course covers interpretation of test results and factors that influence clinical decisions by utilizing many case examples and pertinent literature. Per COPE requirements, you must pass a 10-question post-course test in order to receive CE credit for this course.

- Discuss features of glaucoma on visual fields that are necessary for diagnosis and determination of progression.
- Highlight software features of the Humphrey visual field that assist in glaucoma progression analysis.
