China-Africa NTD Day and Prevention of Blindness Summit
Various Speakers
The World Health Organization (WHO) called for global attention and action against neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) related to ... poverty in 2010. In Sub-Saharan Africa, approximately 500 million people are threatened by NTDs, most of whom are among the region’s poorest and marginalised. Over the past 10 years, Africa has made significant progress on NTDs, but they remain a severe public health issue. This includes the NTD, trachoma, the world’s leading infectious cause of blindness. This summit will see eye health experts discuss how to integrate the multiple resources required to address NTDs in Africa, and discuss the strategies needed to strengthen the response, particularly in relation to eye health service capacity.

Infectious Scleritis: Difficulties in Diagnosis and Management
Dr. Somasheila Murthy
Ophthalmologist, LV Prasad Eye Institute, India
Scleritis is a rare but grave inflammatory disorder. Although a majority of these cases are immune mediated a smaller ... minority are due to infections of the sclera. The two conditions closely mimic each other, and knowledge of the differences aids in rapid diagnosis. If untreated these cases often have poor outcomes both due tissue destruction and also due to propagation of the infection with corticosteroids which may have been started for presumed immune mediated scleritis. In this webinar, we present the clinical features, etiological agents, and the differentiating features between immune and infectious scleritis. We also present diagnostic and management guidelines for managing scleral infection.

Topographic Widefield Analysis in Glaucoma
Dr. Jose Mendoza
Ophthalmologist, Lima, Peru
There is a growing clinical evidence that early glaucomatous damage involves the macula. The anatomical basis of this ... damage can be studied by measuring the local thickness of RNFL and GCL+ layer. Macular damage is typically arcuate in nature and often associated with local RNFL thinning in a narrow region of the disc, “the macular vulnerability zone”. According to Donald Hood PhD's studies, most of the inferior region of the macula projects to the MVZ, which is located largely in the inferior quadrant of the disc, a region that is particularly susceptible to glaucomatous damage. We are going to explore and understand the relationship between anatomical and functional changes in glaucoma and the way the topographic approach with widefield OCT scans gives more insights about the pathology than the usual color-metric based diagnostic.
