Abstract

A study was conducted to determine if glial cells within the retina could contribute to optic nerve degeneration and vision loss via a mechanism involving release glutamate within the retina in response to cell deformation that occurs as a result of elevated intraocular pressure (IOP). It was shown that retinal glial cells may play a role in optic nerve degeneration associated with glaucoma.
