New horizons in neuroprotection.

Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness worldwide and the second leading cause of irreversible blindness in the USA. The most common form of glaucoma, primary open angle glaucoma, is characterized by a chronically elevated intraocular pressure in the absence of any demonstrable structural abnormalities in the eye.
