The glaucoma is now defined by characteristic optic disc and visual field change, without specific reference to the intraocular pressure (IOP). Success of treatment is no longer judged by the mere attainment of IOP less than 21 mmHg. Controversy remains, however, in deciding appropriate management where optic disc and/or visual field damage continues to progress despite a ‘normal’ IOP having been achieved with medical treatment.
