Ophthalmic artery Doppler waveform changes associated with increased damage in glaucoma patients
Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science, Exclusive Author Commentary

Pinto LA et al. – The pattern of blood flow velocities in the Ophthalmic Artery throughout the cardiac cycle seems to be altered in glaucoma patients.

The data from this study show the waveform patterns of the ophthalmic artery blood flow are different according to the degree of glaucomatous damage, with narrower diastolic waveform meaning a more advanced disease. This new approach to Color Doppler Imaging can provide much more information that what we are taking so far. Altogether, these variables may help improve our understanding the complex relation between vascular supply and glaucoma.
