Medically induced glaucoma

Cover Page

Abstract


The last decades have seen an increase of steroid use in ophthalmology to treat various diseases. These include allergic conjunctivitis, uveitis of different etiologies, age-related macular degeneration, central serous retinopathy, and post-operative complications, etc. In addition, recently, ophthalmologists have noted an increasing frequency of uncontrolled steroid use by patients. This could lead to ocular hypertension and steroid induced glaucoma. Recent data on prevalence, causes and pathogenesis of steroid induced glaucoma are presented in the article.
