Antihypertensive Medication Postpones the Onset of Glaucoma
Hypertension, March 2017, Volume 69, Issue 3
This large population based study identified that patients treated with antihypertensive medication had a lower risk of developing glaucoma compared with individuals not on this treatment. This effect was seen with all forms of antihypertensive medication. Hence, although hypertension itself is associated with glaucoma, the use of antihypertensive medication appears to be protective against developing glaucoma.
