    Glaucoma Subspecialty Day 2022
    Glaucoma, Neuro-Ophthalmology/Orbit, Surgical Management

    In this presentation from Glaucoma Subspecialty Day 2022, Dr. Ahmara Ross provides an overview of diplopia in the glaucoma clinic. She reviews a patient case and discusses the following topics:

    • the prevalence and types of diplopia in glaucoma
    • diplopia characteristics
    • the role of visual field loss
    • response to treatment for diplopia after glaucoma surgery

    Clinicians should consider asking patients with glaucoma about diplopia, Dr. Ross concludes, and complaints of diplopia should be addressed by neuro-ophthalmology before surgery is pursued. She also recommends considering how diplopia is affecting a patient's activities of daily living before altering a successful surgery.
