This lecture will discuss the role of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery, glaucoma drug delivery, and preservative free topical glaucoma drop options in treating ocular surface disease in glaucoma patients. A focus on current options for the treatment of ocular surface disease in our glaucoma patients will be discussed in order to optimize the quality of life for this patient type.
