Answer

Patients with elevated IOP should be monitored carefully and frequently until the IOP normalizes and the medications are tapered off appropriately.

Annual visual field assessment is indicated in patients with ongoing optic nerve compromise or pressure irregularities. This assessment also helps in identifying those patients who are at risk of developing POAG. [35]

Long-term follow-up care of patients by an ophthalmologist is important.
