This study was undertaken to compare ophthalmic artery blood flow in eyes having primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) with age matched non glaucomatous eyes using the technique of Color Doppler imaging in Indian patients. One hundred patients of either sex over 40 years of age were divided into two groups of 50 patients each. Group 1 included 50 patients diagnosed with POAG whereas group 2 included patients who did not have POAG. Tests like visual fields and OCT RNFL were conducted and a radiologist assessed the ophthalmic artery blood flow using Color Doppler imaging. Hemodynamic calculations of ocular blood flow were done using the parameters of resistivity index (RI) and pulsatility index (PI). Statistically significant increase in the values of RI and PI were noted in patients with POAG as compared to those who did not have POAG.
