Abstract

The Wroclaw Epidemiological Study revealed OAG as 91% of overall glaucoma cases. The relatively high percentage of glaucoma cases was diagnosed for the first time. This number is higher than reported by other authors of population studies in white communities. In the OH group the 26.14% of the eyes with normal CCT has increased risk, and the 12.5% eyes with thin cornea has highly increased risk of POAG, according to OHTS results.
