We are here to bring you another webinar! This time we are very fortunate to have glaucoma specialist, Dr Colin Clement, as our presenter. The webinar will encompass rapid case studies, common referral mistakes, things commonly missed by optometrists, problem solving glaucoma drops and therapy. Register here now!

Learning Objectives:

  • Develop appropriate treatment goals for patients with diagnosed POAG based on disease status and risk profile.
  • Identify factors that contribute to ocular surface disorders among patients undergoing medical treatment for glaucoma.
  • Modify management to counter ocular surface disease in glaucoma patients.
  • Identify patients with OHT and describe potential therapeutic interventions for preventing progression to glaucoma 
  • Compare SLT with medical therapy as first-line therapy for the management of OAG
  • Create a staged management plan for patients with glaucoma and list steps to take in the event that target IOP is not maintained.


Dr Clement specialises in managing cataract and glaucoma. He is one of Australia’s leading experts in managing these conditions and has built a strong reputation for his pioneering role in the adoption of many new treatment options including minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) and non-penetrating glaucoma surgery (NPGS). Patients often consult Dr Clement for second opinions, particularly when dealing with complex conditions. Dr Clement prides himself on prioritising honest and accurate assessments where the patient’s welfare is the primary treatment goal.

Dr Clement is currently a staff specialist in the glaucoma unit at Sydney Eye Hospital and clinical lecturer for the University of Sydney where he tutors and supervises ophthalmologists in training. Dr Clement is one of only 2 ophthalmologists in Australia to be awarded fellowship to the International Society of Glaucoma Surgery. He is director of the glaucoma surgery wet lab in the Sight Foundation (Sydney) where he runs courses on glaucoma surgery. He is a founding editor for the journal “Clinical and Experimental Vision and Eye Research” as well as associate editor for the Journal of Current Glaucoma Practice. He provides peer review for many other local ophthalmology journals and has been an invited speaker to conferences both in Australia and internationally.
