Thiol/disulphide homeostasis in Pseudoexfoliation
in the Reykjavik Eye Study: prevalence and related ophthalmological variables.
(14,15,16,17,18,19,20) In addition, a study comparing patients with pseudoexfoliation
glaucoma (PXG), primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and a control group showed that depression was significantly more common in the pseudoexfoliative group while the POAG and control groups had similar rates of depression, suggesting that PES may be associated with depression.

Ocular clinical profile of patients with pseudoexfoliation
syndrome in a tertiary eye care centre in south India.
Any secondary form of glaucoma cases such as pigmentary glaucoma, uveitic, pseudoexfoliation
, and history of steroid use or ocular trauma was excluded.
syndrome (PES) is a disorder of the extracellular matrix characterized by the progressive accumulation of abnormal fibrillary material in many ocular tissues.

Two eyes exhibited Fuchs' corneal endothelial dystrophy and two corneal endotheliopathy attributable to pseudoexfoliation
It may improve knowledge about the molecular mechanisms of several eye diseases (e.g., cataract, glaucoma, pseudoexfoliation
syndrome, or age-related macular degeneration) and even indicate metabolic pathways which can be promising drug targets.
