Medical Minute discusses pain medication as treatment for glaucoma

In this week’s Medical Minute, Dr. Joseph Hobbs, chairman of the Department of Family Medicine at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University, discusses how a powerful pain medicine may also function as a glaucoma treatment, by impacting the relationship between two brain cell types that play a role in the condition.

The Medical Minute airs at 8:18 a.m., 1:20 p.m. and 5:18 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday on the 17 GPB radio stations across Georgia. For more Medical Minute episodes, visit the GPB Augusta SoundCloud page.
