Glucocorticoid (GC)-induced ocular hypertension and secondary iatrogenic open-angle glaucoma are serious side effects of GC therapy. Its clinical presentation is similar in many ways to primary open-angle glaucoma, including increased aqueous outflow resistance and morphological and biochemical changes to the trabecular meshwork (TM). Therefore, a large number of studies have examined the effects of GCs on TM cells and tissues. GCs have diverse effects on the TM, altering TM cell functions… CONTINUE READING
