Summary
Brief summary
The primary aims of this study are to determine whether the electroretinogram (ERG), particularly the Phototopic negative response (PhNR) can be improved in patients with glaucoma who take oral supplementation with Resveratrol (RSV) of different doses.
Participants undertake full-field ERG testing and their recordings of responses are examined to determine whether there is a difference in ERG parameters between glaucoma patients taking different doses of RSV and after a wash-out period after stopping RSV.
