Optometrists often encounter patients that continue to progress even after exhausting topical medications and/or selective laser trabeculoplasty.  The next step in managing many of these patients is to consider surgical intervention and a referral to an ophthalmologist for a procedure.  This course will cover the various considerations of intervention when drops no longer can get the job done, as well as a discussion around the role the optometrist plays in managing glaucoma patients after surgical intervention has occurred.
