A target for glaucoma treatment is the intra-ocular pressure (IOP) which is lowered with medications, laser, or surgical intervention. The efficacy of different medication classes is well understood as their IOP lowering effects have been well documented. However, beyond the basic biochemical and pharmacokinetic actions, long-term effects of these drugs on IOP have not been adequately studied. Specifically, does long-term use of anti-glaucoma medications have lasting effects on IOP even with subsequent discontinuation of the medication? In Ontario, prostaglandin analogues are the most frequently prescribed first line anti-glaucoma medication. In our study, we examine the lingering IOP-reducing effects of the prostaglandin analogue anti-glaucoma drug class. Our overall objective is to determine if patients previously treated with prostaglandin analogues remain within acceptable treatment ranges 6 weeks after medication discontinuation, and if this IOP differs from pre-treatment baseline values. Half of participants will discontinue their prostaglandin analogue (PGA) treatment for 6 weeks, while the other half will continue their PGA therapy as prescribed by their ophthalmologist. Both groups will be followed closely throughout the 6 weeks to monitor changes in IOP. This can help us understand the lasting effects of medication use and can help better guide clinical care in optimizing glaucoma management, and help direct study designs of future research that involve any therapy secondary to prostaglandin analogue treatment.
Study the change of retrofoveolar choroidal thickness measured by optical coherence tomography during aerobic exercise inducing an increase in systolic blood pressure in healthy subjects.Ten healthy participants will perform an exercise (riding a bicycle ergometer) and will be examined with EDI-OCT. Each participant will be scanned before exercise, during the exercise and afterwards at 0 and 5 min. Each OCT measurement will be coupled to the arterial blood pressure evaluation.
The study is a prospective randomised controlled intervention comparing the intraocular pressure outcomes following Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) treatment of 180 degrees SLT compared to 360 degrees in treatment naive patients with bilateral ocular hypertension or primary open angle glaucoma . The right eye of each patient will be randomised to receive either 180 or 360 degrees SLT, while the fellow eye will receive the opposite treatment. That is, if the right eye is randomised to 180 degrees SLT, then the left eye will receive 360 degrees SLT. The primary objective is to assess the mean difference in intraocular pressure between two eyes of each participant. The mean difference in IOP will be assessed at two weeks and at one, three and six months after treatment with SLT. Secondary outcomes include assessing whether there are differences in visual acuity, anterior chamber inflammation, visual field progression and the rate of complications between the two eyes treated with either 180° or 360° of selective laser trabeculoplasty. The complications assessed are those published in the literature including: pain, blurred vision, anterior chamber inflammation, IOP spike, and hyphaema. Additionally, participants will be given the opportunity to report symptoms experienced through free text.
Phase III study to compare the safety and efficacy of intraocular implants containing travoprost at two different elution rates versus Timolol Maleate Ophthalmic Solution, 0.5% (timolol) in reducing elevated intraocular pressure in subjects with open-angle glaucoma (OAG) or ocular hypertension (OHT).
The study will be conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of topical administration of brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic suspension compared with brimonidine tartrate ophthalmic solution.
TJO-002 or Acitve Control was administered on primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension patients for 12 weeks. This clinical trial study has hypothesize TJO-002 administration groups are not inferior to Active control administration groups.
This is a randomized study with two treatment arms: 'initial Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) followed by conventional medical therapy as required' ('Laser-1st') and 'medical therapy without laser ('Medicine-1st'). It compares quality of life in the two arms at three years, while also examining the incremental cost and cost-effectiveness of Laser-1st versus Medicine-1st.
Glaucoma is the most frequent cause of irreversible & preventable blindness worldwide, affecting about 2% of the world's population in people over 40. The major risk factor, and only treatable factor in glaucoma, is increased intraocular pressure (IOP). IOP reduction can slow or arrest the progression of vision loss. Current treatment consists of drops administered on a daily basis with unfortunately low patient compliance, increasing the chance of blindness. Eximore's product aims to eliminate the need to apply eye drops on a daily basis and thus solves the significant problem of patient compliance.
To test the safety and effectiveness of netarsudil 0.02% and 0.04% ophthalmic solution relative to placebo in Japanese/Japanese-American subjects with elevated intraocular pressure
This is a Phase I, multi-center, randomized, adaptive, investigator/patient-masked, placebo-controlled, parallel multiple-ascending dose study (Part A) with an extension including up to two selected doses from Part A and latanoprost 0.005% as active comparator (Part B).
