The monkey model of ocular hypertension (OHT) with its resultant optic neuropathy closely reflects the optic neurodegeneration associated with human glaucoma. Utilization of the experimental glaucoma model (ExpG) in non-human primates (NHP) has led to advances in the understanding of aqueous humor dynamics, glaucomatous changes in the visual pathways from photoreceptors to the visual cortex, and anterior and posterior ocular segment pharmacological effects.
