PURPOSE In addition to an elevated intraocular pressure a compromise of the ocular blood supply have been implicated in the pathogenesis of primary open-angle glaucoma. The purpose of this study was to quantify morphologic changes in the choroid including choriocapillaris thickness and density and diameter of large choroidal vessels in post mortem eyes with advanced primary open-angle glaucoma. METHODS We analyzed 20 eye bank eyes (provided from the Georgia Eye Bank in Atlanta) with end stage… CONTINUE READING
