Dr. Sara Thomasy has just begun a study of primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) in American Cocker Spaniels to identify genetic markers that cause the disease. Advanced imaging technology used to investigate glaucoma in human patients will help her visualize the changes that occur in dogs with PACG. The goal is to advance testing for PACG and develop therapies that can help manage the disease in dogs and contribute to treating people with glaucoma.
