The morphology of the trabecular meshwork in three types of open angle glaucoma: primary open angle glaucoma (POAG), corticosteroid-induced glaucoma and pigmentary glaucoma (PG) are described. Ageing is one major risk factor for development of POAG. It is assumed that preexisting age-related changes of the trabecular meshwork (TM) play a role for the development of increased outflow resistance and intraocular pressure (IOP) in various types of glaucoma. These age-related changes in the TM… CONTINUE READING
