This course will discuss the pertinent relationship between intracranial pressure (ICP) and glaucoma. A better understanding of the relationship between pressure gradients surrounding the optic can perhaps help us answer the question: 'Why does a subgroup of our glaucoma patients continue to progress despite 'excellent' pressure control?' This course will walk our colleagues through the scientific rationale and exploration into the relevance of ICP and how this key finding can help us deliver better outcomes and improve the quality of life of a subgroup of our glaucoma patients in the future.
