Unlocking the Secrets of POAG

  Channels: Glaucoma | Posted 10/18/2016

Louis R. Pasquale, MD, states that primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is the most common chronic optic neuropathy and a leading cause of blindness around the world. Dr. Pasquale forwards the idea that POAG can be broken down into multiple subtypes, including paracentral open-angle glaucoma, African-derived open-angle glaucoma, and glaucoma related to estrogen deficiency. He explores each with case examples and discusses how current research on POAG can lead to new treatments.
