Brief description Glaucoma is the second most common cause of blindness. It is a slowly degenerating disease and the level of treatment required is difficult to predict. At present there is no way of knowing whether the eye is receiving inadequate treatment. We have shown that retinal vein pulsation pressure measurements are an indicator of the likelihood of glaucoma progression. Our proposed studies hope to demonstrate for the first time that it is feasible to determine the appropriate treatment level for individual patients.
