Abstract Studies on the application of ozone and electromagnetic field in the rehabilitation of the patient carrier of primary open-angle glaucoma were started at "Carlos J. Finlay" Hospital in 1989 aimed at reducing the intraocular pressure and improving the deteriorated visual and nervous function. Taking into account that the results obtained were mainly directed to the alterations in the ocular hemodynamics, we proposed ourselves with this paper to study the mechanism of action of these techniques in the ocular hydrodynamics. 220 patients (308 eyes) carriers of initial stage primary open angle glaucoma were studied. Visual function and ocular hydrodynamics were evaluated among them. The results attained in the visual function showed an improvement of visual acuity of 68 % in the cases treated with ozone, and of 92 % in the combination therapy. The visual field improved in 100 % of the cases. In ocular hydrodynamics, it was observed improvement in both treatment schemes. There was no biological variation in the values of C and F in the therapeutic schemes used when the initial hydrodynamic parameters were normal. The response in the ocular hydrodynamics to the techniques used was satisfactory with local treatment, or without it. These techniques should be applied in the latent stage of the disease even when there are no evident clinical manifestations and the local treatment is not necessary.
