Abstract

The cardiovascular system and lifestyle choices play important roles in influencing ocular blood flow regulation in patients with glaucoma. This includes the presence of vascular risk factors, abnormal autoregulatory responses, tissue oxygenation, and mitochondrial oxidative stress. Based on this comprehensive review, novel therapeutic approaches may be considered in selected patients for preventing and (or) delaying the progression of glaucoma.
