The aim of this study is to evaluate pseudoexfoliative glaucoma PEX in Primorsko-Goranska County, Croatia, and its characteristics comparing to primary open angle glaucoma POAG. In the study a hundred patients with open angle glaucoma were examined, twenty six of them had a pseudoexfoliative glaucoma diagnosed. We were following intraocular pressure IOP values, visual acuities, visual fields and optical nerve head changes retrospectively. Comparing to primary open angle glaucoma pseudoexfoliative glaucoma in Primorsko-Goranska County has less good prognosis because the IOP is usually higher and more difficult to control, we found progressive loss of retinal ganglion cells and visual field loss develop more rapidly. Because of that pseudoexfoliative glaucoma requires special treatment and following.

primary open angle glaucoma; pseudoexfoliative glaucoma; intraocular pressure; visual field; optic nerve head; visual acuity
