Glaucoma Grand Rounds

Welcome to the Office

When new patients give you a try, use all the tools at your disposal to display confidence.

She Who Snoozes, Loses

Rethinking the Ratio

Our reliance on cup-to-disc measurements may become a thing of the past once new imaging techniques come to market.

To Solve a Puzzle, Use Every Piece

A patient with a dense asteroid hyalosis was confused about her medication schedule.

It Happens… Conversion, That Is

A 71-year-old long-standing glaucoma suspect converts at a particularly inopportune time.

The Shoemaker’s Plea

An acquaintance asks your opinion on a patient you’ve never seen. You’re in a social setting, not in the office. How do you handle the situation?

A patient presents with eye pain, elevated IOP, cataracts and vein occlusion. To get all your ducks in a row, which problem do you address first?

All About That Baseline

Two new glaucoma suspects presented on the same day with similar initial findings. Why wait to medicate? Their differences explain why.
