Analysis of peripapillary choroidal thickness in primary open angle glaucoma

Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness worldwide. It is estimated that Primary Open Angle Glaucoma (POAG), by far the most common type of glaucoma, will affect 79.76 million people aged 40-80 years by 2040. The underlying mechanism of POAG is still unclear. Although increased Intraocular Pressure (IOP) is the main risk factor, multiple studies have shown that reduced perfusion to Optic Nerve Head (ONH) may have a role in development and progression of Open Angle Glaucoma (OAG).
