Dear Reader,

Recent months and years have seen significant advances in our understanding of glaucoma. Much has been learned, not only about damage mechanisms and pathogenesis, but also about diagnosis and management. Treatment options - both medical and surgical - continue to expand. This program will review this new knowledge with an emphasis on incorporating recent insights into day-to-day practice.

Glaucoma now is set up as a continuing medical education publication.

Based on the information that can be found in each of our electronic issues, we offer an associated e-learning course. Each multiple choice test is divided into the following sections:
Special Focus Section, What's New Section, Clinical Issues Section, Practical Tips Section.

Distributed worldwide to approximately 40,000 ophthalmologists, our goal is to educate and update general ophthalmologists, glaucoma specialists and ophthalmology residents.
International leaders in the field of glaucoma are invited to contribute to this journal, sharing their most recent insights.
Supported by an unrestricted educational grant from from Alcon Laboratories Inc., Pfizer Inc and Santen Oy, the publication is non-promotional and has a fully independent Editorial Board.

For all issues Glaucoma Now will be obtaining accreditation for CME.
