The research utilised a mixed methods approach of qualitative and quantitative studies.
Phase 1 identified the variation of reported clinical outcomes by conducting systematic reviews. Phase 2 refined and built on identified outcomes using a DELPHI study on glaucoma experts through respective glaucoma societies. Based on the findings of phase 1 and 2, Phase 3 will validate the highly important outcomes using COSMIN methodology.
