Glaucoma Treatment: Tackling Real-World Cases

By: Inder Paul Singh, MD; Dr. Constance Okeke, MD, MSCE

Webinar Credits: 1.0

Topical pharmacologic therapy is the primary treatment for patients with primary open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension. However, in many patients multiple medications and different classes of drugs are often needed before there is adequate IOP control. After nearly a decade without new pharmacologic treatments, two new formulations were approved in late 2017. View this case-based webinar to learn how the latest treatments are helping to manage glaucoma.

Expiration Date: Thursday, July 23, 2020
