In this study the investigators are going to study the retinal nerve fibers layers (RNFL) modification of two groups of patients, one taking no drugs, the other taking forskolin, rutin and vitamins B1 and B2.

Condition Intervention
Drug: forskolin, rutin and vitamins B1 and B2

Study Type: Interventional

Further study details as provided by University of Roma La Sapienza:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • retinal nerve fibres layer thickness

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • global risk threshold for glaucoma progression


Ages Eligible for Study:   30 Years to 80 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age (30-80 years);
  • Baseline Intraocular pressure (IOP) (20-32 mmHg): average untreated Intra Ocular Pressure (IOP) for both eyes as determined from 2 to 4 visits within a 6-months period;
  • Central Corneal Thickness (CCT) (475-650 µm): average of 3 different measurements from both eyes during the same visit;
  • Pattern standard deviation (PSD) (0,50-3,00 dB) average of both eyes as stated on the most recent visual field index report
  • Vertical Cup/Disk ratio (0,00-0,80): average of both eyes
  • All these data were entered into a calculator specially designed for STAR (Scoring Tool for assessing risk) II parameter. The patients were divided into low-, moderate- and high risk groups according to the result given by the calculator.

Exclusion Criteria:

-other ocular pathologies than glaucoma
