    Personalized model learns patients’ glaucoma-progression dynamics

    Las Vegas—A novel glaucoma monitoring system is being developed to guide providers in establishing personalized monitoring schedules that would help them avoid missing significant progression in glaucoma suspects or patients with open-angle glaucoma, Joshua D. Stein, MD, MS.

    In an initial validation study using data from patients in the Advanced Glaucoma Intervention Study and the Collaborative Initial Glaucoma Treatment Study, the approach detected open-angle glaucoma progression 51% earlier, with 33% better accuracy, and 37% fewer tests than use of a fixed annual monitoring interval, said Dr. Stein, at Glaucoma 2015 during the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
