Evidence to Improve Care


Care in All Settings

A quality standard currently in development

This quality standard addresses care for adults 18 years of age and older with primary open angle glaucoma or who are at risk of developing primary open angle glaucoma. The scope of this quality standard applies to all care settings and includes assessment, diagnosis, and management.

The Provincial Vision Strategy Task Force and Health Quality Ontario are collaborating on the development of this quality standard.

This work on quality standard started in November 2017.
