MCQs – NIOS Conference – Sunday Lectures

Lecture 1:

Tonometry: Intraocular pressure, corneal biomechanics and choice of tonometer

  1. Which of these statements are incorrect?
  • There is strong evidence to support higher mean IOP as a significant risk factor for the development of glaucoma
  • There is strong evidence to support higher mean IOP as a significant risk factor for glaucoma progression
  • IOP is more variable in glaucomatous than in healthy eyes
  • IOP is less variable in glaucomatous than in healthy eyes
  1. Which tonometry method measures IOPcc (Corneal Compensated Intraocular pressure)?
  • Goldmann
  • DCT (Dynamic Contour Tonometry)
  • ORA (Ocular Response Analyser)
  • I-Care
  1. Which of these tonometry methods is most affected by CCT (Central Corneal Thickness)?
  • Goldmann
  • DCT (Dynamic Contour Tonometry)
  • ORA (Ocular Response Analyser)
  • I-Care

Lecture 2:

Improving Outcomes in Glaucoma – An Evidence Base for the Role of Optometrists in Glaucoma Care

  1. According to the UK registry data how many new px per year are diagnosed with vision loss due to glaucoma?
  • 100
  • 1,000
  • 4,000
  • 10,000
  1. What percentage of patients are discharged as normal following first appointment for Glaucoma/OHT within hospital?
  • 40%
  • 75%
  • 5%
  • 10%
  1. Which is incorrect? There is no need to refer for treatment regardless of CCT if:
  • IOP < 25 and aged > 65 years
  • IOP <26 and aged > 80 years
  • IOP < 30 and aged > 80 years
  • IOP < 22 and aged > 65 years

Lecture 3:

The role of imaging in managing Glaucoma

  1. Measurements of structure and function via imaging techniques are used to?
  • Assess the extent of RGC loss
  • Identify progression
  • Quantify progression
  • All of the above
  1. Which is incorrect about Optic Disc photography for progression detection?
  • It does not require specialised review softwear
  • It is subjective
  • It is non quantitative
  • It may be subject to poor image quality.
  1. How often does the WGA recommend that low and moderate risk glaucoma patients should have perimetry performed following the collection of baseline data?
  • Yearly
  • Every 6 months
  • Monthly
  • Every 2 years
