The relationship between structural and functional findings in glaucoma suspects is key to diagnosis and management. Using case examples, this webinar will explore the ever-increasing role of OCT in glaucoma diagnosis, as well as the importance of linking structural damage on OCT to functional loss found through visual fields. Methods to differentiate from other optic nerve conditions will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:
1. Interpret the findings on field analysis to stage the glaucoma and detect signs of progression.
2. Interpret the findings on OCT to stage the glaucoma and detect signs of progression.
3. Distinguish abnormalities found on investigations to be glaucoma or other ophthalmic conditions.
