About the CAG

The CAG has a steering committee which is comprised of experienced clinicians actively involved in glaucoma service provision.   The role of the steering committee is to represent the profession in this area and to make recommendations for service models, develop clinical competencies and guidelines both professional and national.  The steering committee is responsible for identifying, reviewing and updating information resources and providing an education resource in the area of glaucoma and related conditions.

The Glaucoma CAG is open to all BIOS members who are involved or have an interest in glaucoma.

The BIOS Glaucoma CAG aims to:

  • Promote the extended role of an Orthoptist in areas of glaucoma
  • Provide a communication network for those with an interest in these areas
  • Share best practice and make recommendations for service models and develop the role of the Orthoptist in Glaucoma
  • Provide education and training opportunities
