  • This includes ocular hypertension and open angle glaucoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • In people with ocular hypertension including open-angle glaucoma (IOP ≥21 mm Hg), treatment with latanoprost reduced IOP levels by 22 to 39% over 1 to 12 months' treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • The most common type is open-angle glaucoma with less common types including closed-angle glaucoma and normal-tension glaucoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Open-angle glaucoma develops slowly over time and there is no pain. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mechanism of open-angle glaucoma is believed to be slow exit of aqueous humor through the trabecular meshwork while in closed-angle glaucoma the iris blocks the trabecular meshwork. (wikipedia.org)
  • Play media Open-angle glaucoma is painless and does not have acute attacks, thus the lack of clear symptoms make screening via regular eye check-ups important. (wikipedia.org)
  • Of the several causes for glaucoma, ocular hypertension (increased pressure within the eye) is the most important risk factor in most glaucomas, but in some populations, only 50% of people with primary open-angle glaucoma actually have elevated ocular pressure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Open-angle glaucoma accounts for 90% of glaucoma cases in the United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • The relative risk of having primary open-angle glaucoma (P.O.A.G.) is increased about two- to four-fold for people who have a sibling with glaucoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • optical coherence
  • Association between retinal thickness measured by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) and rod-mediated dark adaptation in non-exudative age-related maculopathy. (healthtap.com)
  • Optical Coherence Tomography can show the areas of retinal thickening (due to fluid accumulation) of macular edema. (wikipedia.org)
  • vitreo-retinal
  • Children with yellow-eye in photographs are typically advised to immediately seek evaluation from an optometrist or ophthalmologist, who will assess and diagnose the condition and refer to a vitreo-retinal specialist. (wikipedia.org)
  • causes retinal
  • With respect to embolic and hemodynamic causes, this transient monocular visual loss ultimately occurs due to a temporary reduction in retinal artery, ophthalmic artery, or ciliary artery blood flow, leading to a decrease in retinal circulation which, in turn, causes retinal hypoxia. (wikipedia.org)
  • vasculature
  • While, most commonly, emboli causing amaurosis fugax are described as coming from an atherosclerotic carotid artery, any emboli arising from vasculature preceding the retinal artery, ophthalmic artery, or ciliary arteries may cause this transient monocular blindness. (wikipedia.org)
  • Observations suggest that a systemic hemodynamic challenge provoke[s] the release of vasospastic substance in the retinal vasculature of one eye. (wikipedia.org)
  • ODD can compress and eventually compromise the vasculature and retinal nerve fibers. (wikipedia.org)
  • artery
  • Fluorescein angiography (FA) showed evidence of BRAO of the inferotemporal retinal artery OD. (healio.com)
  • Unilateral visual loss in bright light may indicate ipsilateral carotid artery occlusive disease and may reflect the inability of borderline circulation to sustain the increased retinal metabolic activity associated with exposure to bright light. (wikipedia.org)
  • floaters
  • A variety of conditions can result in blood leaking into the vitreous humor, which can cause impaired vision, floaters, and photopsia. (wikipedia.org)

  • Studies have identified the following abnormalities as risk factors for the development of BRVO: hypertension cardiovascular disease obesity glaucoma Diabetes mellitus was not a major independent risk factor. (wikipedia.org)
  • occurs
  • Glaucoma has been called the "silent thief of sight" because the loss of vision usually occurs slowly over a long period of time. (wikipedia.org)
  • Inflammatory
  • Pars planitis is considered a subset of intermediate uveitis and is characterized by the presence of white exudates (snowbanks) over the pars plana or by aggregates of inflammatory cells in the vitreous (snowballs) in the absence of an infectious or a systemic disease. (wikipedia.org)
