Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness worldwide, with an estimated 70 million people living with this condition. Many individuals with glaucoma remain at risk for disease progression due to inadequate control of intraocular pressure (IOP). Studies have demonstrated that nitric oxide (NO) plays a role in the regulation of IOP through the potential modification of trabecular outflow facility, identifying a new target for IOP control. In this web activity, experts in the field will evaluate the NO pathway in medical glaucoma management and discuss whether NO is neuroprotective, exploring the current status and future endeavors of NO in glaucoma management.
