Association of blood and ocular perfusion pressure with structural glaucomatous progression by flicker chronoscopy
Visual Field Tests
This study is the first to use structural progression and flicker chronoscopy to identify vascular glaucoma risk factors. Older age and lower diastolic BP were associated with progression. By multivariable analysis diastolic BP was associated with RNFL and neuroretinal rim loss. These findings suggest that diastolic BP is associated with structural glaucomatous progression which may have implications for management.
