Glaucoma Update: Watch and Repeat Imaging Upon OCT or VF Change
2020 Glaucoma Subspecialty Day
Complications, Diagnostic & Imaging, Glaucoma
In this presentation, Dr. Leonard Seibold discusses why when the OCT or visual field has changed for a glaucoma patient, the ophthalmologist should watch and repeat imaging. He cites the Academy's Preferred Practice Pattern to support this; "Before changing glaucoma treatment, repeat and confirmatory visual field examinations are recommended for test results that are unreliable or show a new glaucomatous defect."
