  • Corticosteroids (glucocorticoids), used frequently as potent anti-inflammatory agents, increase the risk of glaucoma by raising the intraocular pressure (IOP) when administered exogenously (topically, periocularly or systemically) and in certain conditions of increased endogenous production (e.g. Cushing’s syndrome). Approximately 18 to 36% of the general population are corticosteroid responders. This response is increased to 46 to 92% in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG… CONTINUE READING
