Primary open angle glaucoma: an overview on medical therapy.
Prog Brain Res 2008; 173:181-93PB

Abstract

The purpose of this review is to discuss the topics relevant to the use of intraocular pressure-lowering strategies, which remains the first line in the management of glaucoma. Estimates of blindness from glaucoma and identification of risk factors remain of interest for all ophthalmologists. New functional tests offer promise for better detection and more accurate diagnosis of glaucoma. We finally discuss the impact of various glaucoma therapies, the principles of monotherapy and fixed combinations, which offer benefits of convenience, cost, and safety.
