Special Issue "Advanced Research in Glaucoma: Treatment and Postoperative Approaches"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2023) | Viewed by 5640
Treatment goals for glaucoma have focused almost exclusively on lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) using drugs, laser therapy, or surgery. Surgery should be considered whenever medical or laser treatment is unlikely to maintain sight in the glaucomatous eye. This Special Issue of the Journal of Personalized Medicine aims to highlight the current treatment of glaucoma. It is important to investigate both the safety and the efficacy of IOP-lowering medication, laser surgery, or incisional surgery. I am confident that the results of such studies will be beneficial not only for glaucoma patients but also for physicians. The accumulation of these results will improve the quality of life in patients with glaucoma.
