Pigment Dispersion Syndrome and Pigmentary Glaucoma

  title={Pigment Dispersion Syndrome and Pigmentary Glaucoma},
  author={Nurullah Koçak},
Pigment dispersion syndrome (PDS) and pigmentary glaucoma (PG) are two different spectra of a disease characterized by dispersion of pigment granules from iris pigment epithelium, and their accumulation in different anterior segment regions. While intraocular pressure is normal and no glaucomatous damage is observed in pigment dispersion syndrome, secondary glaucomatous optic neuropathy is observed in pigmentary glaucoma.
