Über den Einfluss der rezeptiven Musiktherapie auf die Durchblutung des Auges und andere physiologische Parameter bei Patienten mit primärem Offenwinkelglaukom

Wenngleich die statistischen Angaben über die Prävalenz des chronischen Offenwinkelglaukoms in einzelnen Studien stark voneinander abweichen, so ist das Glaukom neben der AMD und der diabetischen Retinopathie eine der häufigsten Erblindungsursachen in den Industrienationen. Die Pathogenese der Glau...

The present work deals with the effect of a special receptive music therapy in combination with visualization exercises and binaural beats on the ocular bloodflow, the intraocular pressure, the visual acuity, the visual field and on the subjective emotions of patients who suffer from open angle glaucoma. Concerning the complete results, it is remarkable that receptive music therapy is a method that, with comparatively few expenses, achieves very good results. The two most important pathogenetic components of this disease, intra ocular pressure and ocular perfusion, are demonstrably influenced positively by that therapy. In addition, the music therapy proved also to be successful, because there were improvements in the visual field as well as in the visual acuity of the patients
