Answer

Optic disc changes should be monitored in all patients with elevated IOP. Monitoring can be done either by serial disc photography (where possible) or by serial optic disc diagrams from the same observer. Visual fields may be difficult to perform in patients with corneal grafts, especially in the early postoperative period. In patients with reasonable vision, Humphrey visual field testing or Goldmann visual field testing should be performed.
