Patient management individualized by presentation in normal tension glaucoma

February 27, 2015

CORONADO, Calif. — Work-up in patients with normal tension glaucoma should be individualized according to their presentation, particularly when they are suspected of belonging to certain common subsets with non-IOP-dependent components of the disease, according to a speaker.

“If you think that all normal tension glaucoma is the same and you only have one tool to treat it, I don’t think you’re doing the best for your patients,” Martin B. Wax, MD, said at the annual meeting of the American Glaucoma Society in a joint symposium with the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society. “My evaluation is tailored to what the patient presents and whether I think they fit into one of those subsets.”
