    They did not have access to the exact recruitment process data, so they didn’t know how many patients were approached, how many were considered ineligible, and how many did not give consent to the study.

    They included both treated and untreated eyes, and treatment with various anti-glaucoma medications. The optic disc assessment was also subjective, even though highly trained graders performed the assessments in a standardised manner.

    They concluded by calling for prospective studies based on larger populations, with longer follow-ups and additional parameters.
