Very educational article and references all very current. Great refresher or learning tool. Other treatments in surgery these days is injections into the eye at the same time as cataract surgery as a preventative measure / delay of onset of glaucoma. Istents also are another treatment that is less complicated than the trabeculectomy surgery that was once common.

Sometimes I find it really hard to make time for my learning, but I was blown away by how easy it is with the Ausmed app. I can fit it in during breaks or on the bus to work.
