Study Identifies Clinical Signs of Atypical Angle Closure

Findings viewable on gonioscopy can help doctors take efforts to reduce risk.

One in Eight Glaucomatous Eyes Progresses Fast

These findings highlight the clinical importance of assessing progressive central visual field loss, researchers say.

Optic Disc Staging Systems Effective in Grading Advanced Glaucoma

Two methods showed clinical value even in patients with significant axonal loss.

Angle Closure Extent Correlated with IOP Elevation Risk

The relationship was nonlinear in this study; when the circumference exceeded 180°, pressure levels increased rapidly.

Cup-to-Disc Ratio Associated with Optic Nerve, Brain Aging

Enlarged cupping in women without glaucoma could possibly provide a surrogate measure of pathologic changes and cognitive function.

Seeing Glaucoma Through OCT’s Eye

The answers to so many of our clinical questions lie in the details; be sure to know what you’re looking at.

Reduced Macular Circulation Found in Early POAG, NTG

Study shows a decrease in vessel density in the region was correlated with lower perfusion density and thinner ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer thickness.

Effects of Improved Adherence May Take Time

A glaucoma medication intervention boosted compliance, but clinical outcomes didn’t differ from controls a year later.

Keep in Mind Association Between Diurnal IOP Change, Corneal Power

Large fluctuations may have a significant impact, recent study finds.

Corneal Biomechanics May Aid Glaucoma Diagnosis

Patients with normal-tension glaucoma had more deformable corneas, suggesting the lamina cribrosa of these eyes is particularly vulnerable to even normal pressures.
