    Potential clinical applications of optical coherence tomography angiography in glaucoma

    Editorial: Elevated intraocular pressure has been identified as a major risk factor for primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and current treatments focus on reducing the intraocular pressure to prevent disease progression. However, some glaucomatous patients continue to progress despite intraocular pressure lowering, and in these patients, other risk factors like decreased ocular perfusion pressure and vascular dysfunction may be causative factors. 1 , 2 The recent advent of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) has allowed for fast and noninvasive assessment of microvasculature in the peripapillary retina and macula. 3 Different strategies have been used for assessing microvasculature in different OCTA machines. The ...
