Answer

Perform a standard comprehensive eye examination, such as that outlined in the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Preferred Practice Patterns, on the initial visit. If any visual field or optic nerve changes consistent with early glaucoma are present, then diagnose the patient as having such.
