Risk tools to identify risk of developing COAG and risk of sight loss:- What is the predictive value of risk tools for identifying people in the community who are at
increased risk of developing chronic open angle glaucoma (COAG) and identifying people with COAG who are at increased risk of sight loss?
Treatment for people with an IOP of 22 or 23 mmHg:- What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of treating an intraocular pressure (IOP) of 22 or 23 mmHg in people with normal optic discs and visual fields?
An instrument to measure quality of life in people with glaucoma:- What instrument should be used to measure health related quality of life in people with glaucoma?
Optical coherence tomography for glaucoma:- What is the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for diagnosing and monitoring glaucoma?
Referral filtering:- What is the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of the different models for glaucoma filtering (pathways from case-finding to assessment in secondary ophthalmic care) for detecting glaucoma and glaucoma-related conditions (ocular hypertension and suspected glaucoma)?
