Glaucoma: POAG, GS, OHT

Thursday, February 15, 2024
Live via Zoom


Glaucoma, often called the “silent thief of sight,” is the leading cause of irreversible blindness. More than 3 million people in the United States have glaucoma. The National Eye Institute projects that this number will reach 4.2 million by 2030, a 58% increase in the next six years!  Experts estimate that half of people with glaucoma don’t know they have it. Combined with our aging population, we can see an epidemic of blindness looming.

Join us as Dr. Andrew Tran presents cases and reviews the common glaucoma diagnoses and treatments available and how you can help manage glaucoma and glaucoma-suspect patients.
