Background: Myopia is one of the commonest ocular disorders and has been recognized as a risk factor for glaucoma. Aim of this study is to find the association between intraocular pressure (IOP) and different grades of myopia from low to high and compare it with emmetropia. Methods: Observational study done from January to May 2014. 178 eyes of 100 patients were divided into four groups according to their refractive status. Group 0 – Emmetropia (+0.5 to -0.5D), Group1- low myopia (-0.75 to -3… Expand
Intraocular Pressure Changes in Different Degrees of Myopia
There was a significant difference (P< 0.05) in the IOP values between the different degrees of myopia and eye care practitioners were advised to closely monitor the intraocular pressure of their myopic patients. Expand
A comparative study of intraocular pressure in myopia and hyperopia among a Nigerian population just diagnosed with primary open angle glaucoma in Benin City
The ascending levels of intraocular pressure that occurred with increasing extents of myopia demonstrate that POAG evolves too soon in participants with high myopia than in hyperopia and accentuates the seriousness of glaucoma surveillance in the myopic population. Expand

The relationship between glaucoma and myopia: the Blue Mountains Eye Study.
This study has confirmed a strong relationship between myopia and glaucoma, and myopic subjects had a twofold to threefold increased risk of glAUcoma compared with that of nonmyopic subjects. Expand

Marked to high myopia with a myopic refractive error exceeding -6 D may be a risk factor associated with glaucomatous optic neuropathy. Expand
Intraocular pressure associations with refractive error and axial length in children
Findings do not support an association between IOP and refractive error or axial length in children and questions postulated roles of IOP in the pathogenesis of myopia. Expand
Association of intraocular pressure and myopia in children.
Results indicate that intraocular pressure in children may be higher in myopic than nonmyopic eyes, and could contribute to the mechanisms causing the abnormal eye growth of childhood myopia. Expand

The intraocular pressure of the incident group was higher following onset of myopia than it was prior to onset whereas there was no difference in the IOP of the control groups over the same period. Expand
The expandability of the eye in childhood myopia
While reduced ocular rigidity, increased wall stress and scleral thinning may have a role in myopia progression in childhood the authors were not able to clearly show this in the study of 40 children. Expand
Refractive errors, intraocular pressure, and glaucoma in a white population.
There was a cross-sectional association of myopia with higher IOP and prevalent glaucoma, and hyperopia may be associated with 5-year risk of ocular hypertension, a finding that needs further investigation. Expand

Results suggest that IOP may play a role in the determination of refractive error in myopic children and nonmyopic children between 6 and 9 years of age. Expand
The correlation between intraocular pressure and refractive status.
There were significantly more myopes among persons with IOPs of more than 20 mm Hg than with lower Iops and the association between refractive status and IOP was stronger among Jews of North African or Asian origin than amongJews of European origin. Expand
