The mission of the Glaucoma Subspecialty Day is to equip the general ophthalmologist with practical tools for improving the management of glaucoma patients and to highlight the latest breakthroughs in glaucoma care for the glaucoma subspecialist.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of general ophthalmologists, glaucoma specialists and other ophthalmologic subspecialists and allied health personnel who are involved in the management of glaucoma patients.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe innovations in the diagnosis and management of glaucoma within their historical context.
- Manage complex cases of glaucoma when other eye diseases are present.
- Evaluate the current status of optic disc and retinal nerve fiber layer imaging and its role in diagnosing and managing glaucoma.
- Demonstrate familiarity with current issues in medical and surgical therapy for glaucoma.
- Identify and manage glaucoma surgical complications.
