Pseudoexfoliative syndrome and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma in Primorsko-Goranska County



Pseudoexfoliative syndrome and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma in Primorsko-Goranska County



Collegium Antropologicum 34(Suppl. 2): 211-212



The aim of this study is to evaluate pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEX) in Primorsko-Goranska County, Croatia, and its characteristics comparing to primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). In the study a hundred patients with open angle glaucoma were examined, twenty six of them had a pseudoexfoliative glaucoma diagnosed. We were following intraocular pressure (IOP) values, visual acuities, visual fields and optical nerve head changes retrospectively. Comparing to primary open angle glaucoma pseudoexfoliative glaucoma in Primorsko-Goranska County has less good prognosis because the IOP is usually higher and more difficult to control, we found progressive loss of retinal ganglion cells and visual field loss develop more rapidly. Because of that pseudoexfoliative glaucoma requires special treatment and following.
