PURPOSE To investigate optic nerve head blood flow in patients with glaucoma and to assess the effect of systemic hypertension. METHODS This study included 24 eyes of 24 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma. Eleven of these patients had a history of systemic hypertension. Results in patients with glaucoma were compared with those of 13 eyes of 13 age-matched normal controls. Determinations of relative optic nerve head blood velocity, volume, and flow were obtained with laser Doppler… CONTINUE READING
