Hi guys,

I was wondering if any of you knows the pathophysiological process on how DM predisposes or causes glaucoma and can please explain it to me.

I know the osmotic damage by sorbitol predisposes to neuropathy and cataracts AND Non Enzymatic Glyc (NEG) predisposes to vessel occlusion (protein dep and atherosclerosis) which explains many of the other complications. Although FA puts glaucoma under NEG , I really cant picture it why or how. I only find on the net , it is associated but not much more.

So can someone please explain it to me.

Thanks in advance,




vascular damage leads to inc IOP which in turn leads glaucoma. this is what i remember will get more detailed explanations if i can


dear black curtain thank you very much for your answer wink
