As glaucoma advances, the cup enlarges until it occupies most of the disc area. Courtesy AgingEye Times Glaucoma is a group of diseases of the optic nerve involving loss of retinal ganglion cells in a characteristic pattern of optic neuropathy . Although raised intraocular pressure is a significant risk factor for developing glaucoma, there is no set threshold for intraocular pressure that causes glaucoma. One person may develop nerve damage at a relatively low pressure, while another person may have high eye pressures for years and yet never develop damage. Untreated glaucoma leads to permanent damage of the optic nerve and resultant visual field loss, which can progress to

inviteUserToBeginWebIQ(1,269,512,445); IMS HEALTH, NPA data. Total dispensed prescriptions. March 2003 through February 2004. XALATAN is a prescription medicine used to lower eye pressure, also called intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with ocular hypertension (abnormally high IOP) or open-angle glaucoma. Important Safety Information About XALATAN Like all medicines, XALATAN can have side effects. These side effects are usually mild and tolerable and may include blurred vision, burning and stinging, eyelid redness, the feeling that something is in the eye, eye itching, increased pigmentation (darkening) of eye color, or irritation of the clear front surface of the eye. XALATAN may slowly cause darkening of eye color due to increased brown color, darkening of the eyelid and eyelashes, and increased growth and thickness of eyelashes. Color changes can increase as long as XALATAN is administered; eye color changes are likely to be permanent.

Glaucoma: A group of disorders characterized by progressive damage to the eye at least partly due to intraocular pressure.
Glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness in the USA. About 2 million Americans have glaucoma, but roughly half are unaware of it. Although glaucoma is generally considered a disorder of the elderly, it can occur in any age group. Of those with ocular hypertension, only about 1% per year will develop glaucoma.
Glaucoma can be described according to the mechanism of outflow obstruction as either open-angle or closed-angle (angle-closure) glaucoma. Alternatively, classification can be based on etiology as primary or secondary (see Table 100-1
A comprehensive ophthalmic examination is essential for diagnosis and prompt treatment. Examination includes visualization of the angle by a special prism or contact lens (gonioscopy), IOP measurement, visual field examination and, most importantly, examination of the optic disks. A screening test for glaucoma based only on IOP has low sensitivity, specificity, and positive predictive value. Patients who are at risk for glaucoma should be referred to an ophthalmologist for a comprehensive ophthalmic examination. Visualization of the anterior chamber angle allows differentiation of angle-closure from open-angle glaucoma. However, because the overlying sclera and limbus are opaque, the anterior chamber angle can only be visualized using gonioscopy.

Overview Glaucoma is a disease caused by increased intraocular pressure (IOP) resulting either from a malformation or malfunction of the eye’s drainage structures . Left untreated, an elevated IOP causes irreversible damage the optic nerve and retinal fibers resulting in a progressive, permanent loss of vision. However, early detection and treatment can slow, or even halt the progression of the disease. What causes glaucoma? The eye constantly produces aqueous , the clear fluid that fills the anterior chamber (the space between the cornea and iris ). The aqueous filters out of the anterior chamber through a complex drainage system. The delicate balance between the production and drainage of aqueous determines the eye’s intraocular pressure (IOP). Most people’s IOPs fall between 8 and 21. However, some eyes can tolerate higher pressures than others. That’s why it may be normal for one person to have a higher pressure than another. Common types of glaucoma Open Angle Open angle (also called chronic open angle or primary open angle) is the most common type of glaucoma. With this type, even though the anterior structures of the eye appear normal, aqueous fluid builds within the anterior chamber, causing the IOP to become elevated. Left untreated, this may result in permanent damage of the

Home Up Contributors Submission Information ... Site Map Glaucoma may also occur secondary to anything which causes the iris to become opposed to the peripheral cornea, closing off the anterior chamber angle. This may occur secondary to inflammation with secondary fibrotic changes. Another common cause of secondary angle closure glaucoma is neovascularization of the iris surface or rubeosis iridis. Histopathologically, the iris can be seen adherent to the posterior surface of the cornea, thus closing off the trabecular meshwork (#21985, #21987). In cases of chronic inflammation, the angle is closed off by a proliferation of fibrous tissue. In the case of neovascular glaucoma, there is a sheet of fine vascular tissue which grows along the surface of the iris with secondary fibrosis that leads to closure of the angle(#21988).

Q: What are the symptoms of glaucoma and how is it treated? Julie Anne in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii A: There are three types of glaucoma: open-angle glaucoma, closed-angle glaucoma and congenital glaucoma. The most common type of glaucoma is open-angle glaucoma. Symptoms to look for are increased pressure, need for new glasses, loss of side vision and blank spots in your vision. About 3 million Americans suffer from glaucoma, making it one of the leading causes to blindness. If you have any of these symptoms, contact a physician as soon as possible. The most common treatment for glaucoma is to lower the pressure of the eyes. Other treatments may include medications, laser and other surgery.

Normal and Cupped Disc Elevated IOP Enlarged Cup Physiologic Cup Open-angle glaucoma It has no symptoms at first. But over the years it can steal your sight. With early treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss and blindness. What is the optic nerve? The optic nerve is a bundle of more than 1 million nerve fibers. It connects the retina, the light-sensitive layer of tissue at the back of the eye, with the brain. A healthy optic nerve is necessary for good vision. How does glaucoma damage the optic nerve? In many people, increased pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma. In the front of the eye is a space called the anterior chamber. A clear fluid flows continuously in and out of this space and nourishes nearby tissues.

(also called laser trabeculoplasty):
Laser surgery helps fluid drain out of the eye. Although your eye care professional may suggest laser surgery at any time, it is often done after trying treatment with medicines. In many cases, you will need to keep taking glaucoma drugs even after laser surgery. Laser surgery is performed in a doctor's office or eye clinic. Before the surgery, your doctor will apply drops to numb the eye. As you sit facing the laser machine, your surgeon will hold a special lens to your eye. A high-energy beam of light is aimed at the lens and reflected onto the meshwork inside your eye. You may see flashes of bright green or red light. The laser makes 50-100 evenly spaced burns. These burns stretch the drainage holes in the meshwork. This helps to open the holes and lets fluid drain better through them. Your surgeon will check your eye pressure shortly afterward. He or she may also give you some drops to take home for any soreness or swelling inside the eye. You will need to make several follow-up visits to have your pressure monitored.

Study casts doubt on marijuana's effectiveness as glaucoma treatment
A new study finds marijuana is a relatively ineffective way to treat glaucoma
November 13, 1998
Web posted at: 6:39 p.m. EDT (2239 GMT) AUGUSTA, Georgia (CNN) A new study that says smoking marijuana is a hazy and impractical way to treat glaucoma is the latest twist to the medical marijuana debate. The study, by ophthalmologist Keith Green at the Medical College of Georgia, found the medical benefits of smoking marijuana are slight and relief is temporary. "Glaucoma is a 24-hour-a-day disease, 365 days-a-year disease and you cannot get away from it," he said. The battle over legalizing marijuana for medical purposes has been smoldering for over 30 years. But the issue has been recently fueled by voters in five states Alaska, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada and Washington who passed laws legalizing the drug to ease the symptoms of certain diseases such as glaucoma, AIDS and cancer. Glaucoma is a chronic eye disease that can lead to blindness if left untreated. It is caused by an abnormal increase of fluid pressure in the eye which leads to the gradual loss of vision.
