Neovascular glaucoma: Introduction
Neovascular glaucoma: Numerous secondary ocular and systemic diseases that share one common element, retinal ischemia/hypoxia and subsequent release of an angiogenesis factor, cause NVG. This angiogenesis factor causes new blood vessel growth from preexisting vascular structure. Depending on the progression of NVG, it can cause glaucoma either through secondary open-angle or secondary closed-angle mechanisms.
More detailed information about the symptoms,
causes, and treatments of Neovascular glaucoma is available below.
