Evidence to Improve Care


Care for Adults


This quality standard focuses on care for adults 18 years of age and older with primary open-angle glaucoma and those who are at risk for primary open-angle glaucoma. It focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, and management of this condition and it applies to all care settings. This quality standard does not address care for people with acute angle-closure glaucoma (a medical emergency that requires immediate treatment to prevent vision loss).

Health Quality Ontario has worked in partnership with the Provincial Vision Task Force to develop this quality standard for glaucoma.
