Three human chromosome loci (1q43, 10p12.31, and 12q21.31) were recently associated with the susceptibility to primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) in a Japanese population; however, this was not replicated in three subsequent studies using South Indian, Afro-Caribbean, and Chinese populations. To identify genetic markers that are robustly associated across(More)
PURPOSE The human CAV1-CAV2 locus has been associated with susceptibility to primary open-angle glaucoma in four studies of Caucasian, Chinese, and Pakistani populations, although not in several other studies of non-Korean populations. In this study with Korean participants, the CAV1-CAV2 locus was investigated for associations with susceptibility to(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the properties of pattern standard deviation (PSD) according to localization of the glaucomatous optic neuropathy. METHODS We enrolled 242 eyes of 242 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma, with a best-corrected visual acuity ≥ 20/25, and no media opacity. Patients were examined via dilated fundus photography, spectral-domain(More)
PURPOSE To compare the patterns of retinal ganglion cell damage between primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION). METHODS In total, 35 eyes with unilateral NAION, and 70 age- and average peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness-matched eyes with POAG, were enrolled as disease groups;(More)
