The hosts, Dr. Kaleem and Dr. Quigley, are both experts in glaucoma who work together at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins University, which is among the leading eye hospitals in the world.

Episode 10: The Visual Field Test.

The visual field test, also called perimetry, is an important metric used to monitor glaucoma progression. The patient looks into a dimly-lit, bowl-shaped machine. The patient is instructed to click a button when they see small lights flash in their field of view. The hardest part for patients is to keep looking at the center of the bowl. Patients must stay focused on the center of the machine so that side vision can be accurately measured. This is particularly important because glaucoma tends to affect mid-peripheral vision early on. Learn more about the visual field test in our most recent episode. Listen at diagnosisglaucoma.com.

Episode 8: The Optic Nerve.

The optic nerve is the brain tissue that gets damaged in glaucoma, but there are other conditions that can also affect the optic nerve. In this episode, we’ll discuss how we differentiate glaucoma from the other optic nerve diseases which are called “optic neuropathies.” All episodes can be found at diagnosisglaucoma.com.
