In this two part article, we present a logical cascade of currently available treatment options for patients living with glaucoma, the world’s leading cause of irreversible blindness. Part one discusses medications – both topical and future implantable options – while part two presents laser and surgical interventions for glaucoma management, and describes when each is most likely to be used.
At the completion of this CPD Activity, participants should be able to:
- Be aware of the different therapies available to treat glaucoma,
- Realise when each of the therapies is most appropriate for treatment, and
- Understand the mechanism of action for each of the available therapies.
