How would you integrate corneal hysteresis into your glaucoma management?

Kelly Armstrong, OD:

So since we're just about to graduate in a few weeks, the way I would integrate into my clinical management is if I have a new glaucoma patient — either they haven't been diagnosed yet, or I'm thinking about maybe changing up their treatment — and I'm on the borderline, I would get a corneal hysteresis to help me make that decision factor at the end if I would start them on treatment or add an additional drop going forward.
