TITLE New Advances in the Management of Glaucoma
ABSTRACT: As our understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms of primary open-angle glaucoma continues to expand and improve, new approaches to detection and medical and surgical management of this disease continue to emerge. This review highlights recent advances in glaucoma detection, with emphasis on new devices such as optic nerve head and blood flow analyzers. Medical management advances have been made possible with the introduction of new ocular hypotensive agents and pressure independent therapies. Surgical intervention has evolved with the introduction of new approaches to combined glaucoma and cataract surgery, angle surgery and glaucoma implants. These new advances in diagnosis and the medical and surgical management of open-angle glaucoma are designed to achieve earlier awareness of disease onset, new treatment endpoints, more sensitive markers of disease progression, as well as safer, more effective and better-targeted therapeutic interventions.  Author(s): Shawn L. Cohen, MDCM, FRCSC
