    Sammanfattning : Glaucoma is a common disease in the elderly population. Open-angle glaucoma (OAG) is the predominant form of glaucoma. Chronic simple glaucoma and capsular glaucoma, characterized by the occurrence of pseudoexfoliation in the anterior eye segment, are the most frequent types of OAG. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Intraocular pressure (IOP) measurement is a routine procedure and a fundament in glaucoma care. Elevated IOP is the main risk factor for glaucoma, and to date, reduction of IOP is the only possible treatment. In a retrospective clinical material, the prevalence of open angle glaucoma was estimated on the west coast of Iceland. LÄS MER
