Effect of topical glaucoma medications on optic disc topography in normal tension glaucoma

Effect of topical glaucoma medications on optic disc topography in normal tension glaucoma

Nippon Ganka Gakkai Zasshi 110(5): 404-409

Purpose : To investigate the effects of topical glaucoma medications on optic disc topography in patients with normal tension glaucoma (NTG) using confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy.Subjects and Methods : We enrolled 39 NTG patients(39 eyes) who had not been treated for glaucoma. A combined medication of 0.005% latanoprost and 0.5% timolol gel was administered. Optic disc parameters were measured before and after the treatment using the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (HRT).
