Aim: To study the clinical profile of pseudoexfoliation (PEX) syndrome and Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma at tertiary care centre in Kashmir. Materials and Methods: A cross sectional study consisting of 100 PEX and 100 PEXG patiens, attending the general ophthalmology clinic of a tertiary care center in kashmir. All patients underwent a complete ophthalmologic evaluation including recording IOP,gonioscopy and Central Corneal Thickness(CCT). Results: The study cohort comprised 200 patients(100 with PEX and 100 with PEXG). There were 145(72.5) males and 55(27.5%) females. The highest number of patients (120 patients) were from the age group between 61 and 70years. 145(72.5%) patients were involved in outdoor activities.153(76.5%) patients had bilateral involvement of pseudoexfoliationand pseudoexfoliative material was present at anterior lens capsule in 175(49.58%) eyes. Nuclear cataract was predominant type of cataract and was present in 188(48.2%)eyes. Mean IOP was 17.26Â±7.634mmHg in PEX group and 24.39Â±4.456mmHg in PEXG group. Gonioscopyshowed open angles in 96.5% of eyes and occludable in 3.5% eyes . Mean central corneal thickness was 531.80Â±19.127Î¼m. Conclusion: The prevalence of PEX is found to increase with age. Patients with PXG had more severity of optic nerve damage at presentation. Therefore a careful assessment for detection of PEX is warranted and regular follow-up of patients is desired to minimize the extent of optic nerve damage.
