the Impact of EECP on Intraocular Pressure
EECP therapy may affect the intraocular pressure while improving the ischemia systemic organ blood perfusion the same time. The present study investigated the impact of Enhanced Extracorporeal Counterpulsation treatment on the intraocular pressure.

Intraocular pressure, EECP, no glaucoma
To examine no glaucoma patients' intraocular pressure before and after the treatment of Enhanced Extracorporeal Counterpulsation. EECP one hour per day, 5 hours a week for a total of 35 hours lasting 7 weeks
intraocular pressure, EECP, glaucoma
To examine glaucoma patients' intraocular pressure before and after the treatment of Enhanced Extracorporeal Counterpulsation. EECP one hour per day, 5 hours a week for a total of 35 hours lasting 7 weeks.
Select 40 cases of patients (80eyes) who had counter pulsation treatment at Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) Specialist in First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University during Apr 2012 - Mar 2013. Separated the patients into 2 groups according to having glaucoma history or not.The cases whose eyes have erythralgia and who have received corneal surgery or intraocular surgery in recent one month are excluded.
