Risk Factors for the Structural Progression of Myopic Glaucomatous Eyes with a History of Laser Refractive Surgery.

J Clin Med 2021 May 29;10(11). Epub 2021 May 29.

Institute of Vision Research, Department of Ophthalmology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul 03722, Korea.

As laser refractive surgeries (LRS) have been widely performed to correct myopia, ophthalmologists easily encounter patients with glaucoma who have a history of LRS. It is well known that intraocular pressure (IOP) in eyes with glaucoma is not accurate when measured using Goldmann applanation tonometry. However, risk factors for glaucoma progression, particularly those associated with measured IOP, have rarely been studied. Read More
