Clinicians prescribing hypotensive drops for glaucoma should be careful to monitor ocular surface parameters.
Clinicians should consider having conversations pertaining to well-being with patients with glaucoma and referring them to appropriate support services when necessary.
The new classification system may be able to differentiate between glaucomatous and non-glaucomatous visual field loss.
Despite its failure to achieve noninferiority status, latanoprost without BAK may still be a safe alternative to latanoprost with BAK in treating patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension.
