Long-term intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuation may be significantly associated with the progression of glaucomatous visual field loss, even in patients kept always low IOP after triple procedure, an effective approach for patients with coexisting glaucoma and visually significant cataracts.
Previous studies reported that lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) slowed the advancement of visual field damage in glaucoma patients. However, even if the IOP can been substantially lowered, reduction of mean and peak IOP does not always prevent visual field progression.We believe that the long-term IOP fluctuation may play a significant role in visual field deterioration in those patients.

A quinoxaline derivative and ADRENERGIC ALHPA-2 RECEPTOR AGONIST that is used to manage INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE associated with OPEN-ANGLE GLAUCOMA and OCULAR HYPERTENSION.
A localized defect in the visual field bordered by an area of normal vision. This occurs with a variety of EYE DISEASES (e.g., RETINAL DISEASES and GLAUCOMA); OPTIC NERVE DISEASES, and other conditions.
A form of GLAUCOMA in which chronic optic nerve damage and loss of vision normally attributable to buildup of intraocular pressure occurs despite prevailing conditions of normal intraocular pressure.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
