Presenter: Minimizing disparity between intraocular, intracranial pressures can prevent glaucoma [Healio]

Excerpt from Healio:

In a special session here at SECO, John Berdahl, MD, theorized that glaucoma results when the difference between the cerebrospinal fluid and intraocular pressures is too great.

Berdahl said he evaluated 50,000 patients who had lumbar puncture over the course of 20 years and found that intracranial pressure (ICP), or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure, was lower in people who had glaucoma and higher in people with ocular hypertension.
