Ocular perfusion pressure, cerebrospinal fluid pressure: New players in glaucoma
Growing attention turns to cerebrospinal fluid pressure in glaucomaCataract surgery in patients with coexisting uveitis is more challenging than managing either condition alone.

Glaucoma may not be the disease you think it is
Glaucoma may not be the disease you think it isClinicians continue to explore the relationship between IOP and cerebrospinal fluid pressure in glaucoma.
Cerebrospinal fluid a major player in glaucoma?Imbalance between IOP and cerebrospinal fluid pressure may influence the risk of normal-tension glaucoma or the susceptibility of the optic nerve to ocular hypertension.
Is glaucoma a neurological disease?For years now, there has been considerable evidence indicating that glaucoma should be considered a neurological disease and not an entity isolated to the eyes alone. Perhaps the most compelling evidence for such a characterization is the fact that the retinal ganglion cells affected by glaucoma do not synapse until they arrive at the midbrain (specifically, the lateral geniculate nucleus).
Other factors play role in improving diagnosis, management of NTGIOP is the only proven modifiable risk factor for progression of normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). However, Shan Lin, MD, says there is some compelling evidence that a number of other variables play a role. Dr. Lin reviewed information from studies investigating cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure, myopia, sleep apnea, low blood pressure (BP), oxidant minerals (calcium and iron), and oral contraceptive (OC) use, and found that these factors may contribute to NTG progression.
