Does Lowering Eye Pressure Affect the Results Obtained From Objective Visual Field Testing?
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00799994|
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : December 1, 2008
Last Update Posted : November 22, 2016
A study to determine whether a patient's range of vision test results improve after their eye pressure is lowered by 30% or more by testing on a new machine called the Accumap and how to learn how much the Accumap's results change from one test to another within the same person.
The investigators believe that Multifocal VEP readings (Accumap)(and therefore visual function and ganglion cell function) improve after acutely lowering intraocular pressure.

|Study Type :||Observational|
|Actual Enrollment :||23 participants|
|Official Title:||Effect of Acutely Lowering Intraocular Pressure on Multifocal Visual Evoked Potential Testing|
|Study Start Date :||October 2004|
|Primary Completion Date :||January 2007|
|Study Completion Date :||January 2007|
Patients that have medical intervention in an attempt to lower intraocular pressure (oral or topical)
Patients who have received no intervention
- lowering of intraocular pressure will cause an acute improvement in MfVEP (multifocal visually evoked potential) amplitude readings [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
