Rethinking Outflow in Glaucoma: The Role of Nitric Oxide (CE Webcast)

Activity Description and Purpose

New additions to the glaucoma treatment arsenal can result in better outcomes for patients with glaucoma and ocular hypertension. Optometrists who treat these patients need to keep abreast of how new these treatments work and determine how best to incorporate them into clinical practice on the basis of evidence from pivotal clinical trials.

The goals of this activity are to help optometrists better understand the influences of nitric oxide on the trabecular meshwork and to integrate new therapy based on safety and efficacy in preventing glaucoma progression.

Target Audience

This educational activity is intended for optometrists.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, participants will be better able to:

  • Describe the downstream signaling effects of nitric oxide in relation to glaucoma
  • Discuss the effects of nitric oxide on the trabecular meshwork
  • Apply data from clinical trials on nitric oxide–donating agent(s) for lowering intraocular pressure
