    Risk factors for rapid glaucoma progression

    Published in the American Journal of Ophthalmology,  a retrospective case-controlled study between cohorts of rapid glaucoma disease progressors and nonrapid progressors found that rapid progressors were older, had  significantly lower central corneal thickness, and baseline intraocular pressures.

    They reported higher rates of pseudoexfoliation, disc hemorrhages, ocular medication changes, and intraocular pressure surgery.

    Most importantly they had significantly higher rates of cardiovascular disease irrespective of intraocular pressure control.
