Ocular Blood Flow in Glaucoma

R.N. Weinreb,

Ocular Blood Flow in Glaucoma
 
 
This is the sixth World Glaucoma Association Consensus. The relationship between ocular blood flow and glaucoma has been discussed for more than a century, and still it uniformly fuels debates at glaucoma meetings throughout the world. Clearly, the results of this report will have broad and significant impact on glaucoma research and clinical practice. The global faculty, consisting of leading authorities on the scientific and clinical aspects of ocular blood flow, have met in Fort Lauderdale on May 2, 2009 to discuss the reports and refine the consensus statements. Obtaining consensus on the relationship of blood flow to glaucoma was a daunting task. So much has been studied and written, but how much do we really know? As with the previous WGA consensuses, the Glaucoma Blood Flow consensus is based on the published literature and expert opinion. Although consensus does not replace and is not a surrogate for scientific investigation, it does provide considerable value, especially when the desired evidence is lacking. The goal of this consensus was to establish a foundation for ocular blood flow research of glaucoma and the best practice for its testing in clinical practice. Identification of those areas for which we have little evidence and, therefore, need additional research was a high priority. We hope that this consensus will serve as a benchmark of our understanding, and that it will be revised and improved with the emergence of new evidence.
