This CPD course examines how chronic open-angle glaucoma can be managed if topical therapies fail to reduce the intraocular pressure to acceptable levels, or if there are issues with adherence, side effects and/or allergies to the medical treatments.
The various options available in the hospital eye service are detailed, including laser, minimally invasive surgery and surgical options.
The course also considers the management of closed-angle glaucoma.
