TAGS study into treatment for Glaucoma

Glaucoma is when the optic nerve is damaged, generally by high pressure in the eye, and it's treated by lowering that pressure to minimise any further damage.

The TAGS (the Treatment of Advanced Glaucoma Study) is investigating whether it's better to treat glaucoma with eyedrops or with surgery. It's led by Professor Anthony King, Consultant Ophthalmologist, so why not listen to Professor King explain about the study in this episode from The Clinical Research Podcast.
