    Eye drops are likely the worst method to deliver glaucoma medications to the eye, with adherence and compliance as low as 50%. But a variety of new drug delivery methods are under investigation that could transform glaucoma treatment, as well as the doctor, patient relationship. In this interview from Glaucoma 360, Dr. Robert Fechtner discusses the latest strategies for sustained delivery of glaucoma medication: punctum plugs and rings, subtenon’s space delivery, and intracameral or intravitreal injection.
