Abstract

Purpose Pseudoexfoliation (PEX) syndrome is characterized by the widespread deposition of abnormal extracellular fibrillary material on many ocular and extraocular tissues. We aimed to investigate the association between PEX syndrome and subclinical myocardial ischaemia, using tissue Doppler echocardiography.
