This 3-Hour No-Fee Live Interactive CE Credit course is designed to educate optometrists about the impact of glaucoma on the patient and the doctor and describe how minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) options may help address drop burden and noncompliance issues at various levels of glaucoma progression. In this course, faculty will discuss how MIGS differs from traditional glaucoma surgical options and how it can be performed as a standalone procedure or combined with cataract surgery. Faculty will offer pearls for identifying candidates and mastering conversations with these patients throughout their journey.
