Glaucoma Screening

R.N. Weinreb,

Glaucoma Screening
 
 
This is the fifth glaucoma World Glaucoma Association Consensus. As with other consensus topics, the discussion and conclusions of Glaucoma Screening, the subject for the 2008 consensus, will have broad impact. The global faculty, consisting of leading authorities on various aspects of glaucoma screening, met in Fort Lauderdale on April 26, 2008 to discuss the reports and refine the consensus statements. The Consensus Panel also met at that time, as well as electronically during the subsequent four weeks.Obtaining consensus on how best to conduct glaucoma screening is quite a challenge, especially since the epidemiology and testing paradigms are so different for open-angle and angle-closure glaucoma. As with the previous WGA consensuses, the Glaucoma Screening consensus was based on the published literature and expert experience. Although consensus does not replace and is not a surrogate for scientific investigation, it does provide considerable value, especially when the desired evidence is lacking. The goal of this consensus was to establish the best practice for glaucoma screening, as well as to identify those areas for which we have little evidence and, therefore, need additional research. We hope that this consensus will serve as a benchmark of our understanding, and that it will be revised and improved with the emergence of new evidence.
