Why Glaucoma Causes Blindness (COPE # 67824-GL)
John Berdahl, MD
For some glaucoma patients, glaucoma can be severe and life altering. How do we predict which patients need the most aggressive treatments because they are at the highest risk of going blind? This lecture discusses the underlying physiology of advanced glaucoma, the biggest risk factors for going blind from glaucoma, the increasing cost of therapy for advanced glaucoma, diagnostic tools for advanced glaucoma, and therapies and medications for advanced glaucoma.
