Retinal ganglion cell degeneration has been reported in a range of experimental models of glaucoma. Manifest as pruning of retinal ganglion cell dendrites, it is likely to influence both the function and viability of affected cells. Electrophysiological studies in primate glaucoma have shown that affected cells retain some function and could therefore form a neural substrate for the recovery of visual function in glaucoma. Clinical studies in which the intraocular pressure is reduced have… CONTINUE READING
