This quantity indicates the newest advancements and should be a useful replace with reference to age-related eye ailments not just for ophthalmologists, but in addition for basic physicians.

Age-related 174 Ophthalmic Res 2010;44:173–178 In Glaucoma Retinal ganglion cells are some of the most metabolically active cells in the body, making them particularly sensitive to any circulatory abnormalities that decrease oxygen and nutrient supply. As such, vascular insufficiency and the associated ischemic insult to retinal ganglion cells are implicated in the pathogenesis of glaucoma. It has been shown that primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) patients have an impaired blood flow in the central retinal artery [21–23], inner retinal vasculature [24], optic nerve head [25, 26], ophthalmic artery [27, 28] and choroid [29, 30].
