This checklist provides the essential and optional diagnostic tests that would be required to:

  • Establish a diagnosis of glaucoma (open-angle glaucoma, ocular hypertension, angle-closure disease) undertaken as part of a follow-up assessment to manage progression of disease.

We have also included guidance for follow-up appointments when managing glaucoma. This should be used in line with clinical judgement specific to each case.

This checklist is adapted from the guidelines provided by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). It should be used to guide decision making, in line with local guidelines.

You can download it as a reference and for guiding your team.

Diagnostic tests for first presentation and strength of evidence-based recommendations for clinical practice.
