Aniridic Glaucoma
What is glaucoma? Glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve caused by an increase in eye pressure. This damage causes sight loss over time if the eye pressure is not successfully controled. Why does eye pressure increase? In the front section of the eye between the lens and the cornea is filled with a liquid known as the aqueous humour, this is continually being made by a section of the cillary body (which makes up the iris and the muscles around the lens) and old aqueous humour drains away through an area called the trabecular meshwork which is between the cornea and the iris. In babies and young children with aniridia the trabecular meshwork may be underdeveloped. if this is the case the aqueous humour cannot drain away in sufficiently and the eye pressure increases. This type of glaucoma is called congential glaucoma and is not the most common form of glaucoma in aniridia. In older children and adults with aniridia, the tiny part of the iris that is present in the aniridic eye (but not visable to other people) covers the trabecular meshwork preventing the aqueous humour from draining away and again eye pressure increases. This type of glaucoma is more common and is believe to occur in anything from 6% to 75% of people with aniridia. This type of glaucoma called secondary or aniridic glaucoma and is believed to be most commonly diagnosed in the first 3 decades of life, however, the risk of glaucoma remains high throughout life.

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States, and the most common cause of blindness among African Americans. More than three million people have glaucoma , but half do not realize it because there are often no warning symptoms . People who have a family history of glaucoma, are African American, or are age 60 or older are at increased risk. Early detection and treatment of glaucoma can preserve sight. The Glaucoma EyeCare Program (GEP) promotes early detection and treatment of glaucoma. It raises awareness of glaucoma risk factors (family history, race, age), provides free glaucoma educational materials and facilitates access to eye care. Those eligible for a referral through the glaucoma program receive a glaucoma eye exam and the initiation of treatment, if deemed necessary. Uninsured patients will receive the above care at no charge Patients with insurance will be billed and are responsible for any co-payments and/or the cost of the eye examination.

Note: I originally wrote this article for a National Samoyed publication, but the information applies to most breeds as well, so I hope it will be helpful here. UNDERSTANDING GLAUCOMA IN THE SAMOYED
(and other breeds)
by Kerry Meydam
In this article, I will try to describe the signs, testing, treatments available, and how your dog can be tested for an abnormality which predisposes him to glaucoma, which is not covered in your CERF exam, but does occur at a significant rate in our breed. What is Glaucoma? Generally speaking, there are 2 classifications of glaucoma - Primary and Secondary. Primary glaucoma occurs without previous trauma or ocular disease, and will eventually affect both eyes. Secondary glaucoma is a consequence of some other disease, such as ocular inflammation, lens dislocation, intraocular tumors, or trauma. Primary glaucoma is known to occur in certain breeds at a significant rate and is thought to have a genetic basis - it may be familial or hereditary. At the present time there is no proof that it is inherited in the Samoyed, although with more study and more information compiled in the future, we may find that this is the case. There are 3 basic types of glaucoma: Open angle glaucoma as seen in Beagles, Norwegian Elkhounds, Miniature poodles, and sometimes the Basset Hound; Narrow angle glaucoma as seen in American and English Cockers and the Basset Hound; Mesodermal Dysgenesis, or Goniodysgenesis, as seen in the Samoyed and Basset Hound.

Glaucoma (loss of peripheral vision)
What is glaucoma?
Glaucoma is an eye disease caused by increased pressure within the eye. It is one of the most common causes of blindness and affects 1 in 100 Canadians over age 40.
Although it often occurs in older people, it can develop at any age. People with glaucoma probably lose their sight because increased pressure in the eye and other factors (such as poor blood flow) affect the optic nerve at the back of the
eye. The eye slowly loses nerve function, and loss of side (peripheral) vision. This occurs painlessly, even unnoticeably.
What causes glaucoma?
No one knows exactly what causes glaucoma, but some factors raise your chances of having it:
  • age family history nearsightedness poor health (such as early heart attack or stroke) raised intraocular pressure, (IOP). This is a buildup of pressure inside the
eye caused when a blockage stops fluid from flowing out of the eye. It is important to know about glaucoma, especially if you have any of the risk factors listed above, or have had a serious eye injury or eye disease. Some drugs, such as steroids, can also cause glaucoma. There are many myths about glaucoma. Here are some facts:

GLAUCOMA December 2001 WHAT IS GLAUCOMA? Glaucoma is defined as a disease of the optic nerve, in which the nerve cells in the front of the optic nerve (the ganglion cells) die. The process is irreversible. [For a description, see Box, The Eye.] Previously, it was believed that glaucoma was almost always due to increased intraocular pressure. However, glaucoma has been observed in many patients with normal and even low eye pressure, so the definition now rests on the damage to the optic nerve.
Intraocular Eye Pressure. Previously, it was believed that glaucoma was almost always due to increased intraocular pressure.
Increased intraocular pressure is, indeed, present in most cases of glaucoma, but a large minority of glaucoma patients has normal IOP, which is usually maintained at measurements of 10 to 20 mm Hg. Measurements above this, however, do not necessarily predict glaucoma. For example, only about 10% of people with IOP levels between 21 and 30 mm Hg will actually develop glaucoma. This still puts such individuals at considerable risk for glaucoma, however.
Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma Most people with glaucoma have the form called primary-open-angle glaucoma (also called chronic open-angle glaucoma). Open-angle glaucoma is essentially a plumbing problem. Disease process may occur as follows:

Oftalmologia Ultimo aggiornamento: 13/12/02 Il glaucoma

Il 15 per cento circa di tutti casi di cecità che riguardano le persone anziane è dovuto al glaucoma. Una malattia insidiosa che nella maggior parte dei casi si sviluppa lentamente e senza che il paziente possa rendersi conto da sé che la sua visione sta peggiorando. Del glaucoma esistono due forme diverse per insorgenza e diffusione.
Glaucoma cronico ad angolo aperto
Inibitori dell'anidrasi carbonica:
acetazolamide, diclofenamide, dorzolamide, brinzolamide.
L'anidrasi carbonica è un enzima presente a livello renale e oculare, bloccandola si ottiene un effetto diuretico e una minor produzione di umor acqueo, quindi una riduzione della pressione endoculare. I farmaci di questa classe possono dare febbre e rash cutaneo, inoltre potenziano l'azione degli antidepressivi triciclici, mentre riducono l'effetto dell'acido acetilsalicilico e del litio.
Agonisti colinergici (parasimpaticomimetici): sono quei principi attivi che imitano le azioni del sistema nervoso parasimpatico, comportandosi come il neurotrasmettitore acetilcolina. Carbacolo, pilocarpina, aceclidina aumentano il deflusso dell'umor acqueo attraverso le strutture trabecolari e inducono miosi (restringimento della pupilla). Possono causare congiuntivite, irritazione e bruciore oculare, lacrimazione e miopia.
