Criteria for diagnosis of normotensive glaucoma?
Hello, my sister is a 49 year old female, went to a health center for a routine examination. Her main symptom was presbyopia; having difficulty with reading fine print. She had been prescribed spectacles in her early twenties for reading work. Distance vision is quite clear and she is currently using hobby glasses to read more comfortably. But now she was referred to an ophthalmologist for confirmation of diagnosis of normal tension glaucoma and to initiate medical treatment. I would like to understand the criteria for diagnosis of normotensive glaucoma.
@bidhan The basic criteria for diagnosis of normotensive glaucoma are described as below:
Typical glaucomatous optic nerve damage with cupping and loss of neural retinal rim, progression of damage, an open anterior angle on gonioscopy, a mean intra-ocular pressure of less than 22 mmHg and no measurement greater than 24 mmHg, and an absence of a secondary cause.
