secondary glaucoma, Briroza, Rozacom


Background. Glaucoma is one of the most acute medical and social problems that cause enormous economic damage to society. Secondary glaucoma is the result of complications of such eye diseases as inflammation of the choroid of the eye, retinal vascular thrombosis. The purpose was to determine the effect of Briroza and Rozacom on the condition of the visual analyzer in patients with secondary glaucoma. Material and methods. The study involved 58 patients (58 eyes) with a unilateral process. All patients were divided into three groups. Groups 1 and 2 consisted of the patients with se-
condary glaucoma after anterior recurrent iridocyclitis — 32 patients (32 eyes) in remission and relapse, respectively. Group 3 included patients with secondary (neovascular) glaucoma, which resulted from the central vein stenosis (CVS) and its branches — 26 patients (26 eyes). Results. In the first and second groups, Briroza administration resulted in the intraocular pressure decrease by 21.6 % (p = 0.001) — 21.0 ± 3.5 mm Hg. After a course of treatment in groups 1 and 2, electrical phosphene excitation decreased significantly by 22.4 % (p < 0.05). The critical frequency of flicker-induced phosphene in the mode 3 and 1.5 increased by 20.6 % (p < 0.05) and 47 % (p < 0.05), which indicates an increase in the functional activity of visual analyzer. Conclusions. The inclusion of the drugs Briroza and Rozacom twice a day for 2 months in the treatment of patients with secondary glaucoma is effective due to the increased functional activity of the visual analyzer and normalization of intraocular pressure in patients with secondary glaucoma.
