Future of glaucoma treatment

Many new developments on the research front suggest the battle against glaucoma is turning. New drugs are now entering the clinic, along with new ways to deliver them. There is growing consensus that the future of glaucoma management will be based more on the optic nerve pathway from the retina to the visual cortex, and not strictly limited to improving outflow. EuroTimes takes a look at what glaucoma treatment may look like in the not-too-distant future.

Glaucoma therapy has made considerable progress in recent years, and indications are that various treatments may soon improve ophthalmologists¡¯ abilities to manage this disease. The three main treatment categories remain medical therapy, laser surgery and incisional surgery. This article discusses aspects of these methods and examines the future of glaucoma therapeutics.
