HIGHLIGHTS OF OPHTHALMOLOGY proudly announces the launching of its latest publication INNOVATIONS IN THE GLAUCOMAS ­ Etiology, Diagnosis and Management by the world-renowned author Prof. Benjamin F. Boyd, M.D., and Prof. Maurice Luntz, M.D., prestigious Glaucoma expert and Director of the Glaucoma Service at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York. This new Volume is beautifully presented in an elegant hard binding, with more than 300 superb illustrations and color images covering all major subjects in this exciting topic. It is completely updated, with more than 400 pages of text and grasps the knowledge and experience of the world’s top Guest Experts. This Volume should be a must on your shelf and at the side of every practicing ophthalmologist, ophthalmologist in training, clinician, researcher, surgeon and teacher.
What we know is that the higher the intraocular pressure, the greater the risk that the patient will
develop glaucomatous optic nerve damage. So, if the
patient has a pressure of 18 for example, his/her risk
of developing glaucomatous optic nerve damage is
lower than if the pressure is 28. But that does not
mean that somebody with a pressure of 28 will definitely develop glaucoma because they may not; nor
does it mean that someone with a pressure of 18 will
never develop glaucoma because they may.
The level of IOP needs to be considered with
the appearance of the cup to disc ration of the optic
nerve head. An eye with a C:D > 0.5 is at higher risk
of developing glaucoma and visual field loss. The
higher IOP the greater the risk. The larger the C:D
the higher the risk of developing glaucomatous visual field loss.
Sommer considers that pressure is really a
risk factor that tells us we should be more suspicious
and concerned about an individual the higher his/her
pressure may be.(7) This concern should lead us to
get a baseline visual field test and probably see them
back again in 6 or 12 months to reassure ourselves
that they are not suffering damage to their optic
nerve. As we see them back and become increasingly reassured that their optic nerve is remaining normal, then we would see them fewer and fewer times.
If, however, there is increased evidence that there is
damage to their optic nerve, we would see them more
frequently until we are certain that there is damage.
