LAS VEGAS – Justin Schweitzer, OD, said here at Vision Expo West that the increase in the number of glaucoma patients necessitates optometrists’ involvement in both long- and short-term postoperative management.
ODs must monitor patients who underwent minimally invasive glaucoma surgery for hyphema, hypotony and IOP spikes. In addition, glaucoma medications should be removed one at a time, after 1 week, once target pressure is met.
