Steroid-induced glaucoma and pseudoexfoliation glaucoma, which are usually disorders primarily affecting the TM, have a higher IOP reduction than primary open-angle glaucoma, which has a more complicated mechanism involving ocular hypertension.
Pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXS) is an age-related systemic disease manifesting itself primarily in the eyes and is characterised by the accumulation of microscopic granular amyloid-like protein fibres.
Patients with history of herpetic disease, keratoconus, glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation, cataract surgery, trauma, intravitreal injections or retinal lasers, vitreous hemorrhage, posterior uveitis, proliferative diabetic retinopathy and macular hole related RRD were excluded.
These rings disappear following cataract surgery and the condition is termed Pseudoexfoliation syndrome, which can result in pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PXG).
