ICO Issues Guidelines for Glaucoma Eye Care
The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) published ICO Guidelines for Glaucoma Eye Care in January 2016.
The Guidelines are a valuable resource for the broad suite of health professionals who work with glaucoma and serve to reduce the amount of blindness and vision loss from glaucoma by facilitating diagnosis and treatment. In addition, the ICO Guidelines allow eye care practitioners to define benchmarks that measure the effectiveness of local and regional glaucoma programs.
The ICO Guidelines summarize core requirements for the appropriate care of open and closed angle glaucoma and consider low and intermediate to high-resource settings. They are currently available in English and Spanish as a PDF or as a Word document.
Translation and adaption for non-commercial use is encouraged, but please credit the ICO. The ICO asks that a copy of any translated or adapted documents be sent firstname.lastname@example.org for ICO records.
The ICO Guidelines are designed to be a working document and will be updated on an ongoing basis. Comments are welcome at: email@example.com.
