Between April 2007 and March 2009, glaucoma was managed by general practitioners at a rate of 1.8 contacts per 1000 encounters in the BEACH (Bettering the Evaluation and Care of Health) program, extrapolating to about 200 000 times per year nationally. This was marginally higher than in April 2000 to March 2002 (1.4 per 1000). We compared results from the two data periods to establish what changes had occurred.
