The session will be hosted by Glaucoma Australia CEO Annie Gibbins and our special guest speaker and optometrist George Ploumidis.

George is a Melbourne-based optometrist with 30 years of experience in both rural and urban practice. He joined Glaucoma Australia's Optometry Committee two years ago. He developed obstructive sleep apnea in 2002, which has been treated with CPAP machine. In 2015 he was diagnosed with normal-tension glaucoma associated with obstructive sleep apnea and has since taken a personal interest in the link between the two, and is keen to not only diagnose cases he encounters but to manage his own glaucoma.
