An interview with Mildred M. G. Olivier, MD, and Eydie G. Miller-Ellis, MD. Drs. Mildred Olivier and Eydie Miller review the Annual Meeting symposium they hosted on glaucoma treatment in a multicultural world. Discussion focuses on how cultural diversity and ethnicity can affect patient encounters and the physician-patient relationship. Drs. Olivier and Miller offer several examples of how cultural awareness, especially in patient communication and cooperation with the primary care provider, can improve health literacy and compliance with treatment recommendations.
