Data of a survey of Ghanaian eye care professionals eliciting information on their preferred management practices of Glaucoma. the survey was made available for a month to members of the three professional bodies which represent ophthalmologists, optometrists, and ophthalmic nurses in Ghana. The survey collected data on the demography of practising professionals who provide glaucoma care, their knowledge of glaucoma pathology, diagnostic practices, and therapeutic practices. This data provides valuable information about how Ghanaian eyecare professionals approach the medical management of glaucoma, allowing a comparison to approaches proposed by such bodies as the AOA, AAO< Japanese OSG etc.
