Large fluctuation of IOP seen in patients with PE glaucoma

July 21, 2015

Patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome had a greater fluctuation of intraocular pressure as measured by a contact lens sensor, according to recent research published in the Journal of Glaucoma.

“High maximum IOP levels and a greater IOP fluctuation range may be contributory factors in [pseudoexfoliation syndrome] PE glaucoma,” Naoki Tojo, MD, and colleagues wrote in their study. “In this regard, treatment for glaucoma is needed not only to reduce a temporary IOP, but also to lower the peak IOP and IOP fluctuation.”
