Abstract

Primary (or chronic) open-angle glaucoma (POAG or COAG) may be asymptomatic but causes progressive optic nerve damage with significant loss of visual field.1–3 Treatments aim to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) by reducing the production of aqueous humour and/or increasing its drainage.4,5 Here we update our previous articles1,4 to reflect new drugs, preservative-free preparations and fixed-dose drug combinations for POAG.
