PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to demonstrate a negative association between intraocular pressure (IOP) and age in 2 Asian populations. In addition, we evaluated genetic and nongenetic factors associated with IOP. DESIGN Family-based cohort study. PARTICIPANTS Study subjects >10 years of age from one Korean (The Healthy Twin; n = 1431) and 2 Mongolian populations (The GENDISCAN; n = 859 and 806) with IOP values. METHODS The IOP values were measured with a noncontact tonometer. Each… CONTINUE READING
