Trans-lamina cribrosa pressure difference and open-angle glaucoma

The trans-lamina cribrosa pressure difference (TLCPD) has been defined as the difference between intraocular pressure (IOP) minus cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP), while the IOP, in a strict physical sense, is the transcorneal pressure difference between the intraocular compartment and the surrounding external atmosphere [1], [2]. Since the lamina cribrosa of the optic nerve head, as the presumed site of glaucomatous damage to the optic nerve…
