    Normal tension glaucoma: Prevalence, etiology and treatment

    George Ayoub*, Yanan Luo and Dominic Man-Kit Lam

    Normal tension glaucoma is the most common type of glaucoma among people of east Asian countries. While a significant minority of cases of normal tension glaucoma respond to drugs or surgical procedures that lower intra-ocular pressure, most cases continue to progress, resulting in a continuing loss of visual field and blindness. We here review the current state of knowledge of this debilitating disease, and evaluate a promising pilot study showing a potential route to evaluate normal tension glaucoma and to effectively treat it with a vitamin and mineral supplement.
