Abstract

The patient’s perspective is becoming increasingly important within ophthalmology, with a wide variety of instruments available to ‘measure’ the patient’s response and attitudes to their disease status, and the impact of new treatments on their well-being. The results of these are often used to facilitate change in how conditions are managed. However, they don’t always fully capture the patient experience. This talk will consist of a series of short interviews with patients suffering with glaucoma to give a snapshot of what really matters to them, how they manage in every day life with their condition, what they think of their hospital visits and how they perceive the role of their caring clinician in the management of their disease.
