Description

Risk Factors for Glaucoma Progression: This symposium will review the risk factors identified in large clinical trials and population-based research studies for the progression of open angle and angle closure glaucoma. Data from the Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study, Early Manifest Glaucoma Trial, The Chennai Glaucoma Study and the Liwan Eye Study as well as syntheses of data from others will be presented. The final section will review the practical implications and how to incorporate these findings into clinical practice.
