A treatment plan is a plan that you and your doctor agree to as the way to manage your glaucoma. Its details should be included in your medical chart and updated periodically, as needed.
A typical treatment plan will include:
- Family history and risk factors for glaucoma
- Other health conditions/medications
- Diagnosis and baseline information, such as:
- Measurements of IOP and central corneal thickness
- Evaluation of the optic nerve
- Visual acuity and visual field testing
- Functional assessment
- Initial treatment choice(s) and target IOP reduction (%)
- Follow-up intervals (these vary from 3-12 months, based on what your initial status is and whether your target IOP is achieved)
- Up-to-date record of all medical/surgical treatment results, including IOP reduction, side effects, complications, and follow-ups
- Documentation of any adjustments or changes to the plan
