Description:

What are the next steps when a patient with glaucoma is not stable after treatment has been initiated?  This course will review a variety of different scenarios and treatment options to address the common problem that many optometrists encounter.  What do I do next?  Diagnosing glaucoma can be challenging, but as challenging is knowing what to do next when the patient continues to progress.
