Risk Factors for Glaucoma Progression: Where Does Intraocular Pressure Fit In?

Arch Ophthalmol. 2001;119(6):897-898. doi:10.1001/archopht.119.6.897

IN THIS ISSUE, Tezel et al1 present an analysis of risk factors for progression of glaucomatous optic disc damage in a cohort of patients undergoing treatment for either primary open-angle glaucoma or normal-tension glaucoma. As in some previous studies that were also well done but retrospective,2,3 they detected little if any role played by intraocular pressure (IOP).
