glaucoma may be primary (inherited) or secondary to a number of eye disorders Primary/inherited glaucoma causes an elevation of pressure within the eye disorders/glaucoma.htm
related terms: goniodysgenesis, pigmentary glaucoma What is glaucoma? Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in dogs. It is the result of increased fluid pressure within the eye (elevated intraocular pressure or IOP). If the pressure can not be reduced, there will be permanent damage to the retina and optic nerve resulting in visual impairment. Complete blindness can occur within 24 hours if the IOP is extremely elevated or can occur slowly over weeks or months if the the elevation is mild. Glaucoma is usually very painful. Glaucoma may be primary (inherited) or secondary to a number of eye disorders including luxation of the lens, tumours of the eye, and uveitis (inflammation of the eye). Primary/inherited glaucoma causes an elevation of pressure within the eye because of abnormal drainage of fluid through the iridocorneal angle. When the angle at which the iris and cornea join is wide, the glaucoma is classified as open angle. If the base of the iris is pushed forward, the glaucoma is described as narrow angle. Goniodysgenesis is characterized by an abnormal sheet of tissue in the angle where drainage normally occurs. This may or may not cause an elevation in IOP and glaucoma.

Calcium may be the key to taming premenstrual pain
Calcium from sources such as milk may reduce PMS symptoms in some women
October 27, 1998
Web posted at: 3:09 p.m. EDT (1909 GMT) From Medical Correspondent Dr. Steve Salvatore NEW YORK (CNN) For men ... and women, PMS may be one of medicine's most misunderstood conditions. But for estimated 30 million women who regularly suffer the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, like Anne Maillard, PMS is not myth. "When a woman has PMS, it's like she's in an altered state," Maillard said. "It's like, you know, someone speaks to you and you just snap at them." Many women try to combat the symptoms of PMS with over-the-counter pain remedies. But a new study says a natural alternative, calcium, may be the best answer. The research, funded in part by the maker of Tums, a popular antacid and calcium supplement, studied more than 400 premenopausal women across the United States.

Aniridic Glaucoma
What is glaucoma? Glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve caused by an increase in eye pressure. This damage causes sight loss over time if the eye pressure is not successfully controled. Why does eye pressure increase? In the front section of the eye between the lens and the cornea is filled with a liquid known as the aqueous humour, this is continually being made by a section of the cillary body (which makes up the iris and the muscles around the lens) and old aqueous humour drains away through an area called the trabecular meshwork which is between the cornea and the iris. In babies and young children with aniridia the trabecular meshwork may be underdeveloped. if this is the case the aqueous humour cannot drain away in sufficiently and the eye pressure increases. This type of glaucoma is called congential glaucoma and is not the most common form of glaucoma in aniridia. In older children and adults with aniridia, the tiny part of the iris that is present in the aniridic eye (but not visable to other people) covers the trabecular meshwork preventing the aqueous humour from draining away and again eye pressure increases. This type of glaucoma is more common and is believe to occur in anything from 6% to 75% of people with aniridia. This type of glaucoma called secondary or aniridic glaucoma and is believed to be most commonly diagnosed in the first 3 decades of life, however, the risk of glaucoma remains high throughout life.

Frequently Asked Questions about
Q: What is glaucoma? A: Glaucoma is an eye disease that causes loss of sight by damaging a part of your eye called the optic nerve. There are several different types of glaucoma including primary open angle, angle-closure, secondary, congenital, juvenile, and low tension. The most common type of glaucoma is open angle glaucoma. Increased pressure inside the eye may play a role in glaucoma. Q: How common is glaucoma? A: More than 2.2 million Americans age 40 and older have open angle glaucoma. At least one half of all people with glaucoma don’t know they have it. Q: How many people are blind due to glaucoma? A: Between 89,000 and 120,000 people are blind from glaucoma. It is a leading cause of blindness, accounting for between nine and 12 percent of all cases of blindness. The rate of blindness from glaucoma is between 93 to 126 per 100,000 people over age 40 Q. Am I at risk for glaucoma?

Note: I originally wrote this article for a National Samoyed publication, but the information applies to most breeds as well, so I hope it will be helpful here. UNDERSTANDING GLAUCOMA IN THE SAMOYED
(and other breeds)
by Kerry Meydam
In this article, I will try to describe the signs, testing, treatments available, and how your dog can be tested for an abnormality which predisposes him to glaucoma, which is not covered in your CERF exam, but does occur at a significant rate in our breed. What is Glaucoma? Generally speaking, there are 2 classifications of glaucoma - Primary and Secondary. Primary glaucoma occurs without previous trauma or ocular disease, and will eventually affect both eyes. Secondary glaucoma is a consequence of some other disease, such as ocular inflammation, lens dislocation, intraocular tumors, or trauma. Primary glaucoma is known to occur in certain breeds at a significant rate and is thought to have a genetic basis - it may be familial or hereditary. At the present time there is no proof that it is inherited in the Samoyed, although with more study and more information compiled in the future, we may find that this is the case. There are 3 basic types of glaucoma: Open angle glaucoma as seen in Beagles, Norwegian Elkhounds, Miniature poodles, and sometimes the Basset Hound; Narrow angle glaucoma as seen in American and English Cockers and the Basset Hound; Mesodermal Dysgenesis, or Goniodysgenesis, as seen in the Samoyed and Basset Hound.

General information

Glaucoma is a group of diseases in which the pressure in the eye is higher than that particular eye can tolerate. A higher than normal pressure causes damage to the very sensitive optic nerve at the retina. Loss of sight may occur gradually or in rare cases, suddenly if glaucoma is not controlled. In a rare form of glaucoma, acute glaucoma, there is severe pain, headache and nausea. In the more common chronic form, symptoms are rare and loss of sight occurs so gradually that the patient is not aware of any changes. Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 40. Half the people who have glaucoma don't know it because it usually destroys eyesight without any symptoms of pain. Glaucoma occurs when the body produces too much fluid (aqueous humor) inside the eye or when normal drainage of the fluid does not filter out of the eye adequately. Early diagnosis and treatment is imperative. If glaucoma is discovered early, treatment usually keeps it from getting worse. Regular eye exams are necessary to measure intra-ocular eye pressure, to evaluate the integrity of the optic nerve and to study a patient's peripheral field of vision. It is advised that persons having a family history of glaucoma or other factors indicating predisposition to this disease should be especially cautious.

Glaucoma is a term applied to a group of disorders in which there is characteristic and recognizable damage to the optic nerve. This damage is usually progressive in nature. The optic nerve consists of a bundle of more than 1 million nerve fibers that connect the retina to the brain. When this nerve bundle is damaged, the transmission of visual information to the brain is compromised and impairment of vision results.
The primary mechanism by which this damage occurs is elevated intraocularpressure (IOP). Normal IOP ranges between 11 and 21 mm Hg ( millimeters of mercury). When the pressure from fluid build-up within the eye exceeds this range, damage to the optic nerve may occur. The undamaged optic nerve head, or optic disc

Diagram of anterior chamber with route of aqueous flow
A clear fluid called aqueous humor flows continuously in and out of the anterior chamber of the eye. This fluid is continuously produced by the eye and serves to nourish the nearby tissues. Pressure build-up and subsequent damage to the optic nerve is almost always caused by some type of blockage of the various drainage mechanisms of the eye. The type of glaucoma that is diagnosed by the ophthalmologist can be defined by the type of blockage that has occurred.
