A new study shows that the eyesight of patients with an unusual vision disorder linked to obesity improves twice as much if they take a glaucoma drug and lose a modest amount of weight than if they only lose weight.

Robert Boston, Working with colleagues at 38 centers nationwide, Washington University neuro-ophthalmologist Gregory P. Van Stavern, MD, has found that combining a glaucoma drug with a weight-loss program can improve vision in patients with the disorder known as idiopathic intracranial hypertension.

The condition, called idiopathic intracranial hypertension, affects an estimated 100,000 people in the United States. Most are obese women ages 20 to 50.

The researchers recently reported their results in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

The condition's most common symptoms are headaches and vision problems, including blind spots, poor peripheral vision, double vision and temporary episodes of blindness. Five to 10 percent of women with the disorder experience disabling vision loss. Only about 5 percent of cases involve men.

"The condition results in elevated pressure in the fluid surrounding the brain and the spinal cord," said co-author Gregory P. Van Stavern, MD, a neuro-ophthalmologist at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. "We don't completely understand the disorder but know it affects the optic nerve because when fluid pressure is elevated, the optic nerve is swollen when we examine the eye."

Previous research has found that losing 5 to 10 percent of body weight can improve symptoms in many patients. The glaucoma drug used in the study, acetazolamide, is a diuretic given to glaucoma patients to reduce pressure in the eye. Many eye specialists also have prescribed the drug - given as a pill rather than eye drops - to reduce fluid production in and around the brain.

The disorder also is called pseudotumor cerebri because its symptoms resemble those of a brain tumor, and it is becoming more common as the obesity epidemic grows. In developing countries where obesity is uncommon, very few cases of idiopathic intracranial hypertension exist, Van Stavern said.

The study was conducted at 38 clinical sites in the United States and included 161 women and four men with the disorder and mild vision loss.

At the time subjects enrolled in the study, their average body mass index (BMI) was about 40. A BMI of 30 or greater is considered obese... (continued on our website)
