What is Steroid Responsive Glaucoma?  What is the treatment for Steroid Responsive Glaucoma?

 

Steroid responsive glaucoma is the elevation of intraocular pressure from the use of steroids. The exact mechanism is unknown. Any type of steroid can cause this reaction (topical, ointment, oral pills, nasal sprays.) The elevated intra ocular pressures can be short-term or long-term. The treatment for this condition is to discontinue the steroids if possible. Typically, discontinuing the steroid will be enough to resolve the elevated intraocular pressures. However, if not, topical antiglaucoma medications can be used to control the eye pressure.
