Abstract: Introduction: Glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness, is a heterogenous eye condition characterized by gradual loss of visual acuity due to degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (1). Glaucoma is an off-target effect of corticosteroids when administered intraocularly for treatment of some ocular indications (2). This study uses zebrafish to study whether a glaucoma-type disease is induced by treatment with corticosteroids by assessing the effects on retinal histology and visual function.
