Epidemiology of primary glaucoma: prevalence, incidence, and blinding effects.
TLDR
The prevalence of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) has been increasing, and this trend is undoubtedly due at least in part to advances in diagnostic technology. Expand
Prevalence of glaucoma in Ponza, Italy: a comparison with other studies.
TLDR
The prevalence rates of POAG found in the Ponza Ophthalmological Survey are consistent with the results of other studies, and minor differences are most likely due to the different criteria adopted in the assessment of glaucomatous visual field damage. Expand
Glaucoma and Alzheimer Disease: One Age-Related Neurodegenerative Disease of the Brain
TLDR
Preclinical and clinical evidence gathered so far support the notion that glaucoma is a widespread neurodegenerative condition whose common pathogenetic mechanisms with other diseases, i.e. Alzheimer Disease, should be further investigated as they may shed new light on these diseases improving both diagnosis and treatments. Expand
Prevalence and incidence of age-related cataract in a population sample from Priverno, Italy.
TLDR
The study suggests that, in the Priverno sample, aging, but not gender, is a very important risk factor for cataract. Expand
Evaluation of retinal microvascular density in patients affected by systemic lupus erythematosus: an optical coherence tomography angiography study
TLDR
Evaluated retinal microvasculature using OCTA according to standard lupus retinopathy classification and correlate abnormal vascular density with disease activity, damage and mirror vascular involvement in systemic diseases. Expand
Evidence for the Detection of Subclinical Retinal Involvement in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Sjögren Syndrome: A Potential Association with Therapies
TLDR
Functional eye impairment was demonstrated in SLE patients, possibly associated with kidney involvement, and Morphological alterations and functional impairment were detected in SS patients, which may be linked to hydroxychloroquine toxicity. Expand
Incidence of blindness and low vision in a sample population: the Priverno Eye Study, Italy.
TLDR
This study provides population-based estimates of the incidence of visual impairment in an adult, free-living European population and finds older subjects at baseline were at higher risk for incident visual impairment, the main causes of which were cataract, myopia, and diabetic retinopathy. Expand
Brain involvement in glaucoma: advanced neuroimaging for understanding and monitoring a new target for therapy.
TLDR
Diffusion Tensor-MRI allows the central damage associated with glaucoma to be assessed and therapeutic efficacy of novel neuroprotective interventions to be quantified. Expand
Incidence of visual loss in the Ponza Eye Study, Italy
TLDR
The discrepancy between the ideal and real situations that emerges from this study has important implications for health-care planning. Expand
Optic Nerve Dysfunction in Obstructive Sleep Apnea: An Electrophysiological Study.
TLDR
It is documented that patients with OSA, without medical comorbidities, present VEP alteration as documented by lower amplitude and longer latency of the P100 component than healthy controls, and hypothesize that OSA per se may impair optic nerve function. Expand
