Equinox is pioneering a new understanding of glaucoma based on deep exploration into the physics of the eye and eye pressure. This new understanding is based on the discovery and research into Multi-Pressure Glaucoma Management, or MGM.
Glaucoma is a disease of pressure. In a healthy eye, the intraocular pressure in the eye (IOP) is slightly higher than the intracranial pressure in the brain (ICP). Glaucoma has always been thought of as a one-pressure disease with high IOP as a leading risk factor.
We’ve discovered, however, that glaucoma is likely a two-pressure disease—the balance between IOP and ICP. If IOP is high, or ICP is low, glaucoma may ensue.
