SESSION INFORMATION

Date: 20 Nov 2011

Session Title: COUNCIL LECTURE

Session Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

With approximately 2% of the adult population affected, ophthalmology must look at creative and sustainable programs to tackle this common disease. Although there are improvements in our diag-nostic abilities, local studies have demonstrated that up to 50% of suffers remain undiagnosed and even more disturbing are studies that suggest that our treatments may not be as effective as required. Ophthalmology must take an active role in leadership to promote a multi-disciplinary collaborative approach that results in better outcomes for patients with glaucoma using recognized protocols. The future will rely on a team approach.
