The Bulging Eye: Glaucoma, Proptosis, Exophthalmos, Buphthalmos
In this lecture we will discuss all causes of ‘bulging eyes’, including various types of glaucoma as well as orbital diseases that cause exophthalmos. This lecture will focus on pattern recognition techniques that can be used to differentiate these conditions and select appropriate treatment options.

- 1. Identify the consistent clinical history most often associated with orbital cellulitis and orbital neoplasia.
