Dunbar Hoskins Discusses Glaucoma 360

Dr. Dunbar Hoskins, co-founder of Glaucoma Research Foundation, talks about Glaucoma 360 — three annual events focused on collaboration and innovation to help glaucoma patients and speed the cure.

Video Transcript

H. Dunbar Hoskins, Jr., MD: Glaucoma 360 starts with a gala where everybody comes together and has a good time, and they’re really people that are interested in glaucoma the disease and its cures. But then it leads into a very productive day where industry, scientists and physicians all come together and talk about new things that are being developed to help the glaucoma patients. And it’s this kind of convergence, if you will, of the scientist, the clinician, and the industry who can take these discoveries and make them marketable worldwide that advances medical care — and that’s what we hope this will achieve in glaucoma.

And the third day is the Glaucoma Symposium, which leads into taking what we’ve developed, the knowledge that we’ve gained, and distributing it across the clinical spectrum so that the practitioner actually can implement changes in the management of their patients.
