Description

The diagnosis and management of glaucoma requires the acquisition and interpretation of structural and functional data regarding the status of the optic nerve. This symposium will concentrate on evaluation and application of novel and available strategies and technologies to assess early functional damage in glaucoma and explore how they can best be applied to the care of the glaucoma suspect and the glaucoma patient.
