New Glaucoma service launch June
The service is designed to manage those glaucoma,glaucoma suspect and Ocular Hypertensive patients, already within the Hospital Eye Service, who were considered to be stable and low-risk, with the aim of freeing up consultant-led outpatient appointments for new referrals and complex cases.
Suitable patients are referred into the service by their consultant. The use of protocols and pro formas ensures that all patients receive a comprehensive, standardised assessment with the results uploaded to the OPERA platform to be added to the patients long term ocular notes. This information is reviewed and updated at every visit, as appropriate, and is analysed by the examining optometrist who has been accredited to the WOPEC level 1 & 2 glaucoma certificate. Patients referred to the community glaucoma, OHT clinic remain the responsibility of the referring consultant and are referred back if:
• The IOP becomes raised above the target IOP
• There is glaucomatous progression of the optic disc, visual field or retinal nerve fibre layer
