What is Pigment Dispersion Glaucoma? What is the treatment for Pigment Dispersion Glaucoma?

 

Pigment Dispersion Syndrome (PDS) is a condition that occurs when pigment comes off of the iris and blocks the outflow of aqueous fluid from the eye. When the aqueous fluid can’t leave the pressure inside the eye elevates. The pigment is dislodged by the zonules behind the iris. This will cause transillumination defects in the iris. The pigment will also deposit on the cornea to form a Krukenberg Spindle. About 20% of those diagnosed with PDS will eventually get glaucoma. The treatment involves antiglaucoma medication and laser surgery.
