Aqueous exits the internal eye via the trabecular meshwork and Schlemm's canal, often referred to as the 'conventional' outflow pathway (Figure 2).
Corticosteroids affect the function of the trabecular meshwork by altering its cellular composition, increasing substance deposition in the meshwork and inhibiting enzymes involved in the normal and necessary degeneration of older components of the structure by phagocytosis.
Laser coagulation of the mid-trabecular meshwork was applied to induce ocular hypertension in the right eye (OD) of each monkey.
Recent preclinical studies have also shown that Rhopressa may have disease-modifying properties, including an anti-fibrotic effect of netarsudil on trabecular meshwork cells and the potential to increase perfusion of the trabecular meshwork.
In this condition, the angle in the eye where the iris meets the cornea is normal, but the eye's trabecular meshwork (its drainage canals) becomes clogged over time, causing an increase in IOP and damaging the optic nerve.
