Summary: Determining if a patient has glaucoma can often be a difficult task in early disease due the inherent variability in optic nerve head morphology. This workshop will use clinical examples to emphasise the importance of clinical assessment and the utility of ancillary tests (OCT and fields) in differentiating true glaucomatous optic neuropathy from other causes of optic nerve pathology. A suggested algorithm for follow-up of glaucoma suspects and when to refer will be discussed.
 
Learning Objectives 
1. Review the high-risk features for glaucoma and differentiate these from non-glaucomatous optic nerve changes 
2. Understand the importance of ancillary tests in monitoring for glaucoma suspects for the development of glaucoma 
3. Understand when it is safe to follow-up and when to refer glaucoma suspects


Assessment:  There are 5 optional MCQS with this lecture.
