BLOOD PRESSURE, OCULAR PERFUSION PRESSURE AND OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA IN PATIENTS WITH SYSTEMIC HYPERTENSION - MD LINX (PRESS RELEASE)

Among patients with systemic hypertension, researchers assessed the association between blood pressure (BP), ocular perfusion pressure (OPP) and occurrence of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). A close relationship between OPP and confirmed glaucoma in hypertensive patients was suggested in the findings, this association provided a further evidence of the vascular mechanism in glaucoma pathogenesis.
