Glaucoma, Open-Angle Glaucoma
In this 1-Minute Video, Dr. Matthew Emanuel describes a form of secondary open-angle glaucoma known as pigment dispersion syndrome. Patients tend to have characteristic features such as a pigment on the corneal endothelium (i.e., Krukenberg spindle), mid-peripheral iris defects in a spoke-like pattern, pigment on the anterior and/or posterior lens capsules, as well as zonules. Treatment begins with IOP-lowering medications and may proceed to angle surgery.
