Collaborative Care in Glaucoma

September 20, 2019, 9:45 AM - 11:45 AM

Sands Convention Center - 805-V

The United States population is growing older and more diverse meaning an increase in the prevalence of glaucoma. The number of ophthalmologists is on pace to increase only 2% by 2025, whereas the number of patients requiring glaucoma care and surgery will increase by 1.5 million. Ophthalmologists will need to spend more time in the operating room requiring optometrists to be more involved on the medical side of patient care. This course will discuss the importance of collaborative care between ophthalmology and optometry, the roles the optometrist plays in the management of a glaucoma patient, the postoperative care of minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries and filtration surgeries.
