Ep 37 Talking About Glaucoma - 23Mar2023 KAMAT Shivani Plateau Iris (mp3)
In this episode, I talk with Dr Shivani Kamat, Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology and Glaucoma Fellowship Program director at UT Southwestern, about Plateau Iris.

Ep 36 Talking About Glaucoma 6Jun2022 SIEGFRIED Carla The Perfect Trabeculectomy (mp3)
In this episode, I talk with Carla Siegfried, Jacquelyn E. and Allan E. Kolker, MD Distinguished Professor of Ophthalmology and Vice-Chair of Diversity, Equity, and Professionalism at Washington University School of Medicine, about the gold standard glaucoma surgical procedure: the trabeculectomy. We exchange detailed tips for success for each step of the surgery and post-operative care. It is clear from our discussion that we must continue to train others so that the trabeculectomy does not become a lost art. This is a procedure requiring no special devices and remains the gold standard for achieving low pressures despite its higher complication rate compared to other procedures.
Ep 35 Talking About Glaucoma 21Feb2022 Steve Gedde Glaucoma Surgical Trials (mp3)
There have been many trials proving surgical intervention does indeed reduce the risk of progressive glaucoma damage for our patients. These include Treatment vs No Treatment studies as well as studies that compare different types of treatment. In this episode, I talk with Steve Gedde, from the University of Miami's Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, about lessons learned from these clinical trials.
Ep 34 Talking About Glaucoma 7May2021 LAROCHE Daniel Cost effective suprachoroidal shunt (mp3)

Daniel Laroche is Director of Glaucoma Services and President of Advanced Eyecare of New York. He is affiliated with the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, and Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York.
Ep 33 Talking About Glaucoma 31Dec2020 DeMORAES Gus 24--2C the origin story (mp3)
In this episode, I talk with Gus DeMoraes, a frequent guest of the pod. Gus is Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Columbia University where he serves as Medical Director of Clinical Trials. When we originally sat down to record this way back in March 2019, he had just presented some of the work he had done in collaboration with Don Hood. This has now appeared on Humphrey perimeters as the 24-2C testing strategy and is becoming a new the standard of care. It is based on reports in recent years that glaucoma damage often occurs in the macular area but missed because the standard 24-2 testing strategy only tests in 6 degree increments. These early central glaucomatous defects are often hidden between the test points.
Ep 32 Talking About Glaucoma 9Sep2020 KIM Won Combined MIGS procedures (mp3)
In this episode, I talk with Won Kim, a glaucoma colleague based on Walter Reed in Bethesda, Maryland, about how he has been combining multiple minimally invasive glaucoma procedures in patients who have failed traditional glaucoma surgery. I'm Rob Schertzer, a Vancouver, Canada based glaucoma specialist, podcaster and HealthIT expert, and we're...talking about glaucoma.
