Ocular hypertension is generally thought of a precursor to glaucoma. The understanding of various risk factors through the Ocular Hypertension Treatment Study (OHTS) is fundamental to our treatment and management of this condition. With the advent of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) we gained further insight into effective management of this ocular hypertension. The clinical paradigm has shifted over the years in what testing to perform, how frequently patients need to be seen, and when to initiate as well as escalate treatment. In this course we will review the proper definition, causes and most up-to-date treatment and management of ocular hypertension.

Optometrists remain the first line of defense for the majority of glaucoma suspects and glaucoma patients that prevent for comprehensive exams. With the advent of new medications over the last five years and the number of patients with glaucoma increasing as baby boomers are getting older, it is imperative to understand the medication profiles including side effects and potential adverse effects with glaucoma medications especially given several co-morbidities that may be present in this patient population. Rather than having a one size fits all approach, it is important to decide a treatment plan on an individual basis. In this course we will review the mechanisms of actions of the medications, proper techniques in measuring intraocular pressure and both the conventional and unconventional drainage systems of aqueous humor. We will go through several clinical cases to enhance understanding using real-life examples.
