Myopia -Complications-Glaucoma

Myopia is associated with an increased prevalence of all forms of open-angle glaucoma and OHTN* (n=34 K GLC, 400K controls)

•A recent meta-analysis of myopia as a risk factor for glaucoma pooled data from 11 different studies and concluded that:
•for low myopia (myopia up to 3 D) the odds ratio – 1.65 (95% CI 1.26-2.17)
•for higher myopia (in excess of 3 D) the odds ratio – 2.46 (95% CI 1.93-3.15)
