Aim: The study was to evaluate neuropsychological functions in patients with glaucoma.
Materials and methods: A complete examination of 90 patients was performed, which were divided into 3 groups of 30 people each: Alzheimer's disease group, vascular open-angle glaucoma. All patients underwent clinical, neurological and neuropsychological examination.
Results: The data on the similarity of the structure of cognitive deficit in patients with Alzheimer's disease and glaucoma were obtained. More than half (50%) of patients with open-angle glaucoma were newly diagnosed with moderate cognitive impairment.
Conclusion: The results indicate the need for a comprehensive neurological and neuropsychological examination of patients with glaucoma for the early diagnosis of cognitive disorders, the appointment of timely therapy and an improvement in the prognosis of the disease.
