The Asia Pacific Glaucoma Society is proud to offer the educational resource that has emerged from the South East Asia Glaucoma Interest Group’s (SEAGIG) Initiative for Management, Awareness and Glaucoma Education (IMAGE) project. The IMAGE Academy is an online initiative designed as a complete educational resource for glaucoma management.
Through this interactive portal, ophthalmologists across the Asia-Pacific region can access a series of online learning modules based on the Asia Pacific Glaucoma Society’s current Asia-Pacific Glaucoma Guidelines, with input from over 50 leading regional experts from 7 Asian countries.
This comprehensive, clinically focused resource covers the spectrum of glaucoma management – from diagnosis and assessment to treatment options, follow-up and patient-centered outcomes. The learning modules aim to serve as a platform that would help to keep ophthalmologists abreast of the latest developments in the management of glaucoma, as well as support glaucoma education programs by serving as an exhaustive resource of information. All modules are reviewed by the IMAGE Advisory Board.
The APGS-IMAGE project can be accessed here.
