Structure-function relationship in glaucoma: from research to clinical practice

About the session

This session will explore recent advancements in the understanding of the relationship between structural imaging and perimetry. Dr Giovanni Montesano will explain methods for structure-function mapping in glaucoma, the empirical relationship between structural and functional measures, some basic physiological processes underlying perimetric sensitivity and recent developments brought forward by artificial intelligence, novel imaging and innovative perimetric tests. 

All these aspects will be presented in the context of current and future clinical applications, with the objective of facilitating the integration of structural and functional information in clinical practice and glaucoma care.

Dr Giovanni Montesano

Giovanni Montesano is an ophthalmologist and, currently, a Clinical Glaucoma Fellow at Moorfields Eye Hospital. He was a full-time Research Fellow at City, University of London, with Prof. David P. Crabb between 2019 and 2021 and in collaboration with Prof. David F. Garway-Heath. He continued his surgical and clinical training as a Glaucoma Fellow at Moorfields Eye Hospital. 

His research interests focus mainly on clinical psychophysics, perimetry, retinal and optic nerve imaging, artificial intelligence and structure-function relationship in glaucoma and retinal diseases. He has collaborations with many international groups and has presented at important national and international conferences.
