Introduction

Glaucoma can cause deterioration in sight and, if diagnosed early enough, the extent of vision loss can be reduced. Despite glaucoma being relatively easy to diagnose, the diagnosis can often be missed by GP's or opticians meaning the patient is not referred in a timely manner to a consultant ophthalmologist which in turn leads to a delay in diagnosis.

This webinar will help you to understand glaucoma, the key principles in diagnosing the condition and up to date quantum case law.

It will also cover some of the common pitfalls in conducting these claims.
