Consider prophylaxis for neovascular glaucoma

NEPTUNE, N.J. – Leslie Gauntlett, OD, a resident at the New Jersey VA Health Centers, sought out guidelines for when to perform gonioscopy and when to provide prophylactic treatment for patients with a large amount of ischemic to prevent the development of neovascular glaucoma.

She reported here at the New Jersey Academy of Optometry meeting that her research said there are no clinical guidelines yet, “but it’s something to keep an eye out for.”
