Many glaucoma patients remain at risk for disease progression due to inadequate control of intraocular pressure (IOP). Traditional therapies target aqueous humor production or aqueous outflow via the unconventional outflow pathway but do little to restore function of the conventional outflow pathway. Evaluation of nitric oxide signaling has demonstrated that it plays a key role in IOP regulation via its action on the conventional outflow pathway. In this recorded educational symposium, experts in the field evaluate the roles of the conventional and unconventional outflow pathways in regulating IOP and assess the role of nitric oxide in reducing IOP and its role as a therapeutic target in glaucoma management. They also examine new clinical evidence regarding the use of nitric oxide-based agents for the management of patients with glaucoma.
