SS-04: Glaucoma Section Symposium: Exploring the Intersection of Glaucoma and Dry Eye Disease
Thursday, October 24 from 10 AM to Noon
Glaucoma and dry eye disease are both common and visually significant chronic diseases that have a significant impact on quality of life. Often the two conditions exist concurrently, especially when the patient with glaucoma is on multiple topical ophthalmic medications that utilize preservatives that alter the ocular surface and lead to symptoms of discomfort. This is a vicious cycle that should be considered by each primary care optometrist when managing and co-managing patients with glaucoma. There are new glaucoma medications and formulations of older medications that are becoming available to help address these issues in glaucoma patients. This symposium will highlight the intersection of dry eye disease and glaucoma and talk about ways to concurrently manage the two to improve the quality of life in patients. It will also cover some of the new glaucoma medications, including how and when to implement them. The moderator is Austin Lifferth, OD, FAAO, and the speakers include C. Lisa Prokopich, OD, Michael Chaglasian, OD, FAAO, and Elizabeth Muckley, OD, FAAO.
