Glaukombehandlung bei hoher Myopie

  • B. Voykov
  • J. M. Rohrbach


Sowohl eine hohe Myopie als auch ein Glaukom können die Sehfunktion stark mindern. Das gleichzeitige Vorliegen beider Erkrankungen stellt eine besondere diagnostische und therapeutische Herausforderung dar. In diesem Beitrag wird eine Reihe dieser Besonderheiten diskutiert.

Glaucoma treatment in high myopia


Both high myopia and glaucoma can have devastating effects on the visual function. Diagnostic tests and treatment can be challenging when both diseases are coexistent. This article discusses some of the typical problems in the management of glaucoma in highly myopic patients.
