We’re a group of eye doctors from all over Europe who have been working together to create this course. The internet is full of information about glaucoma but a lot of it is not of very good quality. We hope this course will provide patients with glaucoma the opportunity to discover more about their condition, to really understand what glaucoma is all about and to learn how to manage it effectively.
