Abstract

Purpose: To examine the effectiveness of achieving single-digit intraocular pressure (IOP) targets with filtration surgery on decreasing global and localized visual field (VF) progression in eyes with progressive normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). Methods: A retrospective chart review was conducted to identify NTG patients who underwent trabeculectomy with mitomycin C between 2006 and 2010 for progressive VF loss with preoperative IOP≤15 mm Hg during the 12 months before surgery. All eyes had glaucomatous optic neuropathy and progressive VF loss, uncontrolled IOP on maximum therapy, and a minimum of 2 baseline preoperative and 4 postoperative VF examinations. VF progression was assessed using Guided Progression Analysis (GPA) and Progressor software. Results: Fifteen eyes of 14 patients (mean age 71.8±7.5 y) were enrolled with mean follow-up of 71±26 months. Mean postoperative IOP (8.5±3.5 mm Hg) was significantly (P
