About the Virtual Course

The annual Duke Glaucoma Fellows course is going virtual in 2020!  The one-day course will provide glaucoma fellows with a comprehensive overview of current practices and controversies in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma and virtual experience in the latest surgical techniques. Fellows will be able to view surgical techniques and instrumentation and discuss how recent clinical trial evidence translates into the clinical setting.

The mission of Duke Glaucoma team is to develop trainees with a fundamental understanding of glaucoma diagnosis and management while promoting intellectual curiosity. Duke Glaucoma is dedicated to the principal that research into disease mechanisms, patient care and new technologies is the primary method by which we improve the outcomes of patients.
