The diurnal curves and tonography result were studied in 367 eyes of 236 patients with ocular hypertension 2 20 mmHg. The outflow values of 97 eyes with glaucomatous optic nerve damage (OND) were compared with those of eyes with similar pressure but without optic nerve damage. The coefficients were lower in the former than in the latter group, but the differences were small and deviations great. Tonography performed in addition to the diurnal curve seems to be of very limited value in predicting the risk of g…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
