DTI in pseudoexfoliation glaucoma

A proportion of patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) will develop glaucoma (PEXG). There is a strong genetic component in PEX as common SNPs of the LOXL1 gene are supposed to be associated with PEX and PEXG. However, genetic testing is not suitable to identify those with PEX at increased risk for developing secondary glaucoma. Aim of this project is to elucidate the role of primary injury of the 4th neuron of the visual pathway in patients with PEXG with structural MR-imaging (DTI).
