Although IOP reduction remains the primary goal of POAG therapy, increasing evidence shows that other considerations, including vascular factors leading to ischemia, may contribute to disease initiation or progression. At present, we lack longitudinal, prospective, and randomized trials regarding the effect of ocular blood flow on POAG prognosis. If such studies show a protective effect against POAG, they will open a new era in glaucoma management.
