Detecting glaucoma early and managing progression
Clinical challenges in glaucoma
Knowing your glaucoma patients sooner
Many patients do not experience any symptoms in the early onset of glaucoma, therefore testing with tools such as OCT and Perimetry can help identify early suspects.
Identify and manage progression to adapt to proper treatment
A major challenge to understanding glaucomatous damage is the lapse between initial structural changes to the optic nerve and the functional changes that follow. OCT often shows RNFL loss when there is not yet any visual field loss. Part of our challenge in making the diagnosis is understanding the correlation between both tests, which is also especially important for progression.1
