Navigating the Psycho/Social Aspects of Glaucoma
The psycho-social issues of glaucoma that so dramatically affect a patient’s quality of life are rarely addressed in glaucoma care as they have been in other medical situations such as AIDS, cancers and Alzheimers.

How can glaucoma affect your professional and personal life? How does stress impact glaucoma? What techniques can reduce anxiety? What should you look for in a therapist? Glaucoma patient Joe Lovett and psychologist Deborah Waxenberg explore these and other questions about living with glaucoma.
