Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:18th Jun 2014

Background : Glaucoma is a common disease, potentially blinding, characterized by progressive damage to the optic nerve. If the intraocular pressure is the most known risk factor, however, there are cases of glaucoma scalable despite well-controlled intraocular pressure, ocular hypertension without glaucoma or glaucoma without ocular hypertension (normal tension glaucoma).

Purpose :Involvement of vascular factors in the development of glaucoma and scalability has been proved, associated with a possible loss of vascular autoregulation. The objective of this study is to quantify MRI flow of blood flows referred ophthalmic patients with glaucoma untreated comparison with control subjects.
