Focal Points 2019 Module: Update on Pseudoexfoliative Glaucoma

Focal Points 2019 Module: Update on Pseudoexfoliative Glaucoma

Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma is the most common identifiable form of secondary open-angle glaucoma.

This Focal Points module reviews the evolution of options for intraocular pressure control with medications, laser procedures and incisional surgery.

Recent evidence demonstrating an association with vascular diseases, including central retinal vein occlusion, cardiovascular disease and cerebrovascular disease are also discussed.

By completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Identify the genetic and environmental factors relevant to pseudoexfoliation syndrome and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma.
  • Emphasize the importance of early diagnosis given the rapid progression of PXG relative to primary open-angle glaucoma.
  • Briefly describe the global distribution and epidemiology of PXS.
  • Summarize recent literature in medical, laser and surgical management of PXG.
  • Review the evidence that links cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease to PXS.
