  1. 1. Progression in Glaucoma

    Author : Hanna Maria Öhnell; Oftalmologi (Malmö); []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glaucoma; visual fields; perimetry; diagnosis; progression; Optical Coherence Tomography OCT ; optic disc photography;

    Abstract : The treatment of glaucoma is focused on reducing the intraocular pressure to a level at which progression is impeded. A diagnosis of glaucoma is not considered certain until progression is confirmed, and thus detecting progression is a central aspect in both the diagnosing and the monitoring of glaucoma patients.

  2. 2. Studies on the Epidemiology of Open-angle Glaucoma

    Author : Curt Ekström; Albert Alm; Bertil Lindblom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Ophtalmology; Open-angle glaucoma; Epidemiology; Capsular glaucoma; Chronic simple glaucoma; Normal tension glaucoma; Pseudoexfoliation; Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma; Prevalence; Incidence; Intraocular pressure; Oftalmiatrik;

    Abstract : Glaucoma is a common disease in the elderly population. Open-angle glaucoma (OAG) is the predominant form of glaucoma. Chronic simple glaucoma and capsular glaucoma, characterized by the occurrence of pseudoexfoliation in the anterior eye segment, are the most frequent types of OAG. READ MORE

  3. 3. Glaucoma Diagnostics

    Author : Sabina Andersson; Oftalmologi (Malmö); []
    Keywords : POAG – glaucoma – diagnostic accuracy – screening – subjective assessment – population-based – GDx VCC – OCT – HRT – FDT – ONH assessment – CME – ANN – artificial neural network – visual field assessment;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses several aspects of glaucoma diagnostics from both a clinical and a screening perspective. New instruments for diagnosing glaucoma have been developed over the past years, but little information is available regarding their performance as screening methods and their usefulness in ordinary clinical practice.

  4. 4. Molecular Genetic Studies of Genes Predisposing for Glaucoma

    Author : Mattias Jansson; Claes Wadelius; Annika Lindblom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; glaucoma; MYOC; OCLM; GSTM1; OPTN; mutation analysis; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of visual impairment in the world. In glaucoma, the patient’s peripheral vision is lost due to progressive and irreversible deterioration of the retinal ganglion cells and atrophy of the optic nerve. READ MORE

  5. 5. Glaucoma Characteristics and Risk Factors - Results from Malmö Eye Survey

    Author : Kirsti Grødum; Oftalmologi (Malmö); []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vascular disease; Ophtalmology; Oftalmologi; myopia; optic disc hemorrhages; mortality; refraction; glaucoma; population screening;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on data from a large glaucoma screening, comprising 32, 918 elderly citizens of Malmö and data from retrospective analysis of glaucoma patients’ charts from the Eye Department of Malmö University Hospital. The definition of glaucoma was based on reproducible visual field defects and/or glaucomatous optic nerve head damage in both groups. READ MORE
