“Glaucoma is challenging to treat and also challenging to explain. I try to explain conditions to patients in understandable terms so we are all on the same page. Every year we learn something new about glaucoma. We have many new options for managing glaucoma that were not available at the start of my career. It is an exciting time for glaucoma specialists.”
