The Queen’s University Department of Ophthalmology offers a Comprehensive Adult Glaucoma Fellowship, which provides advanced training in surgical and medical glaucoma, as well as research methodology. The fellowship delivers critical experience in the ever-widening spectrum of options in glaucoma management — from traditional glaucoma lasers (SLT, YAG, Argon, diode) and surgery (trabeculectomy, Ahmed Valve, Baerveldt drainage device, bleb needlings, bleb revisions, cataract surgery), to MIGS (iStent, Hydrus, KDB, GATT, XEN, Preserflo), and some novel surgical procedures (Ahmed Valve augmentations). Fellows gain expertise in the fundamentals of diagnostic testing (VF, OCT, UBM, Anterior Segment OCT), clinical examination, and delivery of expertise via Telehealth. The program’s link to big data and clinical research also provides fellows with a unique perspective and skill set, and positions them for long-term impact on their communities or in academia. The three mentors for this fellowship are Drs Robert Campbell, Harmanjit Singh, and Delan Jinapriya.
