About this Course

Objective of the course: To help teachers transform lectures into more effective learning interventions.

Being an expert in a clinical or a surgical topic does not translate into being a good teacher. To become a good teacher we need a theoretical framework that will help us understand and apply teaching principles and strategies to teaching.

Traditional lectures have ranked very low when measuring their effectiveness.

It has been estimated that by 2020 there will be approximately 80 million people with glaucoma, an increase of about 20 million since 2010. Furthermore, it is thought that at present over 8 million people are bilaterally blind due to glaucoma, a figure that is set to rise to over 11 million by 2020 with the increasing prevalence, unless improved screening and effective treatment strategies are successful.
The problem with glaucoma is two fold. Most forms of glaucoma are bilateral, but asymptomatic in their early stages, hence decreased awareness and patients reach the doctors only when the disease is advanced. About 50% of all glaucoma cases are undiagnosed in developed countries, this figure being as high as 90% in the developing parts of the world. The second problem is that the diagnosis is not simple using one or two parameters. Diagnosis of glaucoma is based on intraocular pressure measurement, gonioscopy, disc assessment and visual field testing. However, unbiased collection of each clinical findings and interpretation of all the test results in correspondence to each other while keeping in view the limitations and pitfalls plays a crucial role in appropriate diagnosis and management.

Further, many classes of pharmacological agents are used in the management of this disorder both as single agent as well as combined therapy. Most potent agent is not always the best agent. Therefore, a good understanding of nuances in using these agents is essential in preventing vision loss in this disease. While majority of glaucomas are treated medically, when medications do not help surgical treatment helps to control the intraocular pressure. Hence understanding of when to move on to surgery is important.
