Purpose : This study was designed to uncover a new sensitive and specific factor for predicting the progression of glaucoma. Methods : The 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure and diurnal curve of intra-ocular pressure were recorded in seventy patients: 51 primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and 19 normal tension glaucoma (NTG). The mean systolic, diastolic and average arterial blood pressure were calculated, along with the nocturnal dip of systolic pressure and diastolic blood pressure. Two-year… CONTINUE READING
