1. RISK THRESHOLDS FOR GLAUCOMA AND ITS EVOLUTION

It is used to assess the risk of developing glaucoma in the next 5 years in patients with untreated ocular hypertension.

DATA

Age:

The patients were between 40-80 years old, therefore precautions must be taken if our patient is outside that range.

CHEEP.:

The range of P.I.O. is between 23 - 32 mm Hg, average of 2 - 4 feedings in a period of 6 months

EEC - Central Corneal Thickness:

The pachymetry range is 450-670 microns, using ultrasonic pachymetry and using the average of 3 shots.

Scaling / vertical papilla ratio:

Range between 0.1 and 0.9. One measurement per eye, using the average of both eyes. The contour is valued, not the color.

DEP - Standard Deviation of the Pattern

Range between 1.00 and 2.59. Mean of Both eyes using the most recent visual field.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Match the IOP (mm Hg) to the age of the patient.

2. Fit the EEC with the DEP.

3. Find the E / P ratio according to whether or not the patient has diabetes. The E / P ratio indicates the% risk.

RISK - TREATMENT RATIO

1. Risk <5% ----------> Observe and monitor

2. Risk 5% - 15% ----------> Consider treatment

3. Risk> 15% ----------> Treat

2. OHTS-EGPS STUDY NOTES (POINTS or CONTINUOUS)

It is important that the patient data is as similar to that used in the study.

Age:

The patients were between 30-80 years old, therefore precautions must be taken if our patient is outside that range.

CHEEP.:

The range of P.I.O. it is between 20-32 mm Hg, using a Goldman tonometer and taking an average of 3 shots.

Central corneal thickness:

The pachymetry range is 475-650 microns, using ultrasonic pachymetry and using the average of 3 shots.

Excavation / papilla ratio:

One measurement per eye. The contour is valued, not the color.

Standard deviation (Humprey) / corrected loss of variance (Octopus):

You can use one or the other.
