Administration of picamilon, a cerebrovascular and nootropic drug, to patients with primary open-angle glaucoma with normalized intraocular pressure and declining visual function resulted in improvement of the central and peripheral visual fields manifesting by improvement of individual sensitivity threshold, decreased area and intensity of
scotomas; the treatment had a favorable effect on light sensitivity and vision acuity in some patients.
No noticeable effect on arterial pressure was observed. Picamilon
did not reduce the intraocular pressure.
