Abstract

Glaucoma is a group of blinding diseases characterized by optic neuropathy and visual field damage. The diagnosis ofrnglaucoma remains elusive due to its slow and chronic nature. Both structure and function testing are needed in manyrnpatients to confirm the diagnosis. Over the past two decades we have learned many lessons from clinical trials includingrnthe identification of new risk factors and guidelines to treatment. Lessons from clinical trials apply directly to the real lifernmanagement of glaucoma. However, despite the advances in our knowledge base challenges and obstacles remain in saving vision in glaucoma patients before permanent damage occurs.
