Overview of Open-Angle Glaucoma

Glaucoma describes a group of conditions in which there is a characteristic hollowing of the optic disc with corresponding visual field defects, due to the loss of retinal ganglion cells. It is a progressive disease and the most common cause of irreversible blindness worldwide.

Categories of open-angle glaucoma

The two main categories of glaucoma are

  • open angle glaucoma,
  • And angle-closure glaucoma.

Types of open-angle glaucoma

Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and secondary open-angle glaucoma. POAG is a subset of glaucoma defined by an open, normal-appearing anterior chamber angle and elevated intraocular pressure (IOP), with no other underlying disease. In secondary open-angle glaucoma, there is an identifiable cause of increased eye pressure, leading to optic nerve damage and loss of vision.

open angle glaucoma symptoms

The sign and symptoms of GAO include increased IOP, anterior chamber angle opening, and optic disc changes seen on clinical examination, such as an elevated cup to disc ratio , asymmetry of the cup/disc ratio between the eyes, vertical elongation of the cup, etc.

Open Angle Glaucoma Risk Factors

Risk factors for GAO include advanced age, family history of glaucoma, African ancestry, myopia, elevated IOP, low blood pressure, topical corticosteroid use, inflammation, and tumor. There are several risk factors such as age > 60, genetic predisposition, certain ocular characteristics (such as pupillary defect, thin cornea, myopia), low level of education, smoking, African ancestry and visual problems, which are associated with this indication and so the treatment model varies accordingly.

Classification of open-angle glaucoma

POAG is classified according to the age of onset, as primary congenital glaucoma (onset up to 3 years old), juvenile open-angle glaucoma (JOAG; onset between 5 and 35 years old), and POAG at age adult (after the age of 35).

Epidemiological segmentation of open-angle glaucoma in 7MM

  • Prevalent population diagnosed by type

Open angle glaucoma treatment

The primary goal of glaucoma treatment is to increase quality of life through IOP reduction to preserve visual function. In the process of lowering IOP, an ideal drug should have a simple schedule to follow, disrupt the patient’s life as little as possible, be highly tolerable and affordable. However, medical treatment for glaucoma has associated side effects, complications, and costs.

Open Angle Glaucoma Market Overview

There are three mainstays for lowering eye pressure i.e. medication, laser and surgery. The two types of laser treatments currently used are Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) and Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT). Surgery for GAO includes cataract surgery, microinvasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), trabeculectomy, drainage implant surgery, and ciliary body removal. There is a range of drugs for lowering intraocular pressure in the OAG, which are divided into five major classes, namely prostaglandin analogues, beta-blockers, diuretics, cholinergic agonists (parasympthomimetics) and alpha agonists.

Evaluating emerging treatment for open-angle glaucoma

Open angle glaucoma Treatment aims to lower IOP and thereby reduce the risk of progressive vision loss, using medication, laser therapy or conventional surgery. Open angle glaucoma Treatment options are expanding rapidly. However, there is no cure available yet.
