    In this presentation from Glaucoma Subspecialty Day 2022, Dr. Andrew Lee explains the Goldilocks principle and when to scan patients with glaucoma. Imaging should occur when the scenario suggests "not glaucoma"—that is, it's not "just right," as Goldilocks would prefer. Historical features and exam findings indicating "not glaucoma" include rapid progression, pain, hemianopic field loss, visual acuity loss, band cupping, and proptosis. Dr. Lee shares patient cases to illustrate this approach.
