Though most people with glaucoma manage well with an eye drop or two and retain their functional vision, a subgroup of glaucoma patients worsen catastrophically over time. Is it possible to identify which group your glaucoma patients will be in? And when should the comprehensive ophthalmologist consider escalation or referral to a glaucoma specialist? Drs. Aakriti Shukla and Sean Rivera join host Andrew Pouw to look at the data and discuss strategies that work across various practice settings and patient populations.
