GLAUCOMA AND ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

Bentham Science observes World Glaucoma Week from 8th to 15th March, 2018, with the world and presents full support for the victims of glaucoma through publishing the latest research developments to combat this dangerous eye disease. Glaucoma is a widely feared eye problem because it causes irreversible blindness. Eye researchers and ophthalmologists have mostly attributed glaucoma to the increase in intraocular pressure, i.e. the increase in fluid pressure inside the eye.

However there are cases where the glaucoma patients had normal intraocular pressure, which suggests that there are other factors that can cause or enhance the risk of contracting this disease. Researchers from the Ophthalmology Unit of the University of Rome Tor Vergata have recently discovered that the patients of Alzheimer’s were often found susceptible of getting glaucoma in their eyes. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia in the elderly that hampers memory and understanding.

Both these neurodegenerative diseases were found to have very similar risk factors and often co-existed in the older people. The research is an important revelation and opens doors for future studies and possible progress in finding cure for both Alzheimer’s disease and glaucoma.

The research entitled, Glaucoma and Alzheimer Disease: One Age-Related Neurodegenerative Disease of the Brain, is published in the Bentham Science journal, Current Neuropharmacology.

World Glaucoma Week 2018!

World Glaucoma Week is observed from 8th March to 15th March, 2018. Glaucoma, is an eye diseases that is associated with elevated intraocular pressure, in which damage to the eye (optic) nerve can lead to loss of vision. Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world.

Bentham Science publishes papers from prominent medical researchers on Glaucoma. For the best published articles view the following journals:

World Glaucoma Week 8th-14th March 2017!

Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to the eye’s optic nerve and gets worse over time. It’s often linked to a buildup of pressure inside the eye. Glaucoma tends to be inherited and may not show up until later in life.
