PURPOSE To use the pupillary light reflex and polysomnography to evaluate the function of intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) and to correlate this function with structural damage in glaucoma. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS A study was conducted on both eyes of 45 participants (32 patients with glaucoma and 13(More)
PURPOSE To assess the integrity of intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) using the pupillary light reflex in glaucoma patients. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted, including 76 eyes from 38 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma and 36 eyes from 18 control subjects. The patients were tested in the dark with light(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE To describe the ocular findings of two infants with congenital Zika syndrome born in São Paulo state, Brazil, outside the primary outbreak region. METHODS Two female infants with congenital Zika syndrome were submitted to a complete screening for infectious diseases, as well as ocular examination, fundus photography, and optical(More)
We report a case of a 5-year-old girl with persistent fetal vasculature who presented with unilateral acute angle closure caused by aqueous misdirection syndrome that was apparently associated with regression of cycloplegia. Initial treatment with topical steroids, anti-glaucomatous drops, and atropine showed insufficient control of the intraocular pressure(More)
INTRODUCTION Pregnancy has been shown to increase women's vulnerability to mental disorders. Common mental disorders (CMDs) have been studied both in the general population and in pregnant vs. non-pregnant women. During pregnancy, CMDs have been considered a potential predictor of obstetric and infant outcomes. METHODS A search was conducted on the(More)

Patients with glaucoma showed to have higher daytime sleepiness measured by Epworth sleepiness scale. In addition, this symptom was associated with pupillary reflex and polysomnography parameters. These ipRGC functions might be impaired in patients with glaucoma, leading to worse quality of life.
