A revised glaucoma guideline produced by Optometry Australia is expected to be released in August.

National clinical policy advisor Simon Hanna is co-ordinating the review with a working group of nine expert practitioners.

Mr Hanna says Optometry Australia is reviewing and updating its guideline on glaucoma diagnosis and management to ensure it reflects contemporary best practice and takes account of the role that optometrists can now play in the management of glaucoma.

‘Our goal is to provide a guideline that is practical and directly supports the translation of best practice into the consulting room. We are conducting the review with the assistance of a working group of members with extensive experience and expertise in this area of clinical practice. We will also consult all state organisation boards before finalising the revised guideline.

‘The guideline will be released alongside a revised and updated version of our Clinical Guideline on Tonometry,’ he said.
