The probability of having glaucoma may be expressed by the quotient p = (number of eyes with glaucomatous damage)/(total number of eyes). p has been calculated for different IOP levels, within a total population and also within groups with and without pseudo-exfoliation (PE). The resulting quotients were plotted versus IOP. Random irregularities were reduced by regression analysis, using the equation for the logistic distribution. The resulting sigmoid curves demonstrated that the probability p… CONTINUE READING
