Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An association between glaucoma development or progression and compromised ocular blood flow has been postulated as a result of population-based studies and prospective cohort studies. Blood flow in the optic nerve head (ONH) is of primary importance in the pathogenesis of glaucoma. The potential to modify the blood flow in the ONH and its related structures has been reported in various agents, including topical antiglaucoma drugs and systemic drugs such as calcium channel antagonists, which are reviewed in this manuscript. Clinical implications of the improvement in ocular blood flow on the treatment of glaucomatous optic neuropathy require further investigation.
