    Normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) is an optic neuropathy of unknown etiology characterized by optic disc excavation, retinal nerve fiber layer loss, and visual field defects similar to those seen in other forms of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. Patients with glaucomalike optic nerve and visual field changes yet normal intraocular pressure are numerous and require treatment to preserve vision.

    The femtosecond laser has revolutionized corneal surgery, and refractive surgery in particular. Its development has expanded the safety and precision of LASIK and has offered new opportunities in corneal implant and transplant surgeries. This online course discusses current applications of the laser in LASIK, keratoplasty, and other surgeries, as well as emerging applications.

    The timing of a surgical intervention in visually significant congenital cataracts depends not only on the age of onset of the opacity, but also on whether the condition is unilateral or bilateral. A critical period of visual development follows the latent period, rendering a significant visual setback if the visual axis is not cleared by this point. Topics in this course include wound construction, IOL selection, and management of complications.

    Trauma involving the orbital and periorbital region may occur in isolation or in association with other facial or systemic injuries. Those injuries that seemingly involve only the orbital region may mask a life-threatening injury. Conversely, if there are concomitant serious systemic injuries, injury to the periorbital region may be overlooked. This course discusses the classifications of oculoplastic trauma as well as management strategies.

    Phakic intraocular lenses are lens implants designed to be inserted into the eye while still leaving the natural lens of the eye in place. These lenses are generally used for refractive purposes, mainly for the correction of high degrees of myopia, but may also be used for correction of hyperopia, astigmatism, or presbyopia. This course covers the concept behind phakic IOLs, patient selection and preoperative diagnostic testing, calculating phakic IOL powers, and common complications.
