Glaucoma is estimated to cost Australia $4.3 billion every year by 2025, as a result of an ageing population. Approximately 10% of Australians over the age of 40 are considered to be at risk of glaucoma, or ‘glaucoma suspects’. Of these, around 12.5% will go on to develop glaucoma within the standard two-year interval for routine eye examinations.

In this opinion piece published in Insight magazine, Dr Brian Ang explains why a proactive approach to managing glaucoma risk is the way forward.

Patients like the fact that my explanations are clear, concise, and easy to understand. I make sure that I provide enough relevant information so that patients can make the best informed decisions based on their own circumstances. What I will not do is to pressure patients into making decisions that they are not comfortable with. Instead I will respect and support your decisions as we work together to achieve the best clinical outcomes for your eyes.
