Abstract

This report was commissioned to evaluate the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of screening for open angle glaucoma (OAG) in the UK. Specifically, secondary research with economic modelling was required to assess the extent to which screening for OAG would meet the National Screening Committee (NSC) criteria for a screening programme and to identify future research needs.
