Association of Open-angle Glaucoma With Perfusion Pressure Status in the Thessaloniki Eye Study – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To investigate the association of open-angle glaucoma (OAG), primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and pseudoexfoliative glaucoma (PEXG) with ocular perfusion pressure status (ocular perfusion pressure with or without antihypertensive treatment).Design: Cross-sectional, population-based study.Methods: A total of 2554 randomly selected, ≥60 years old subjects participated in the Thessaloniki Eye Study. Only clinic-visit participants (n = 2261), who had uniformly collected data, were included in the analyses. A logistic regression model was run for OAG in all clinic-visit participants; covariates included age, sex, diastolic ocular perfusion pressure, antihypertensive treatment, intraocular pressure (IOP), IOP-lowering treatment, pseudoexfoliation, and vascular factors identified as risk factors for (Read more...)
