The Effect of Ocular Hypotensive Agents on Macula

The Effect of Ocular Hypotensive Agents on Macula We evaluated the effect of long-term topical antiglaucoma drugs on the macula using the noninvasive macular visual field threshold test in 100 eyes of 75 patients with ocular hypertension or primary open-angle glaucoma. We found that topical antiglaucoma agents can alter macular sensitivity after long-term therapy and advise evaluation of the macula in glaucoma patients receiving antiglaucomatous agents. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Annals of Ophthalmology Springer Journals

Abstract

We evaluated the effect of long-term topical antiglaucoma drugs on the macula using the noninvasive macular visual field threshold test in 100 eyes of 75 patients with ocular hypertension or primary open-angle glaucoma. We found that topical antiglaucoma agents can alter macular sensitivity after long-term therapy and advise evaluation of the macula in glaucoma patients receiving antiglaucomatous agents.
