The Normal Tension Glaucoma Conundrum

Normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) is an optic neuropathy of unknown etiology characterized by cupping of the disc, typical visual field loss, and normal IOP. The diagnosis of NTG is made by exclusion, and an extensive differential must be considered in evaluating patients with suspected NTG. This course will review the vascular pathophysiology and discuss the differences of NTG from POAG and non-glaucomatous ON cupping. Management pearls will also be provided.
