The Asia Pacific Glaucoma Guidelines have been produced by the APGS to assist ophthalmologists throughout the region to optimally manage patients with glaucoma using the world’s best current knowledge and standards. The aim of the guidelines is to improve the mutual understanding of this disease and to provide a rational approach to the diagnosis and management of glaucoma, with specific emphasis on the problems associated with glaucoma among Asian races. The work is intended to complement the existing scientific literature and textbooks and serves as an aid in dealing with glaucoma in a rapidly changing medical and socio-economic environment.
The project was executed under the auspices of the APGS and was reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee of the APGS.
We are grateful for the constructive criticism and novel ideas put forward by many colleagues who are experts in their field. A special note of thanks is due to the generous financial support of Pfizer, Alcon, Allergan, and Merck who made this production possible.

A hard copy edition of the Asia Pacific Glaucoma Guidelines Second Edition can also be purchased. Members are offered a discounted rate. To purchase a copy of the Asia Pacific Glaucoma Guidelines Second Edition please email us.
