Glaucoma is a complex disease. It requires an ophthalmologist who is especially trained and skilled in the medical and surgical care of glaucoma, which is known as the completion of a formal glaucoma fellowship. This advanced training which takes places after completion of a 4 to 5 year training program of training in ophthalmology is an intensive course of training which gives a eye specialist the specialised ability to treat simple and complex glaucoma across all ages from paediatric, adolescents to adult patients with ease. A glaucoma specialist keeps up with all the research and developments that are occurring in glaucoma all over the world, understands the fine but extremely important differences in options required by patients and offers the best available glaucoma care to his or her patients
