Glaucoma

ICO GuidelinesThe Task Force on Glaucoma has issued ICO Guidelines for Glaucoma Eye Care, international guidelines for the evaluation and management of glaucoma, based on existing guidelines and other resources. The Guidelines summarize core requirements for the appropriate care of open and closed angle glaucoma and consider low and intermediate to high-resource settings.

Translation and adaption of the ICO Guidelines for non-commercial use is encouraged, but please credit the ICO. The ICO asks that a copy of any translated or adapted documents be sent info@icoph.org for ICO records.

The ICO Guidelines are designed to be a working document and will be updated on an ongoing basis. The Task Force welcomes any comments.
