Studies of glaucoma in Japan suggest that patients have baseline IOP that is generally lower than patients in other populations, hence the baseline IOP range in this study begins at 15 mmHg, lower than is typical of glaucoma studies in the United States or Europe.
Normal IOP in healthy young adults ranges from 10 to 21 mmHg. [18] Deviation from this range either above or below implies ocular hypertension or hypotension, respectively.
Patients having IOP of more than 21 mmHg, receiving anti-glaucoma medication or history of glaucoma surgery and family history of glaucoma were excluded from the study.
Before this change, people with systolic blood pressure of 120 to 139 mmHg or diastolic pressure of 80 to 89 mmHg were considered to be prehypertensive.
The findings suggest that controlling blood pressure, even at levels below the threshold currently defined for hypertension of 140/90 mmHg, may be a way to prevent these conditions.
For hypertensive individuals less than 65 years of age, the target is to bring it down to less than 130/80 mmHg, and if tolerated, up to 120/70 mmHg.
The result of MAP was recorded in mmHg. Data was entered and analyzed with the help of statistical package for social sciences version-16.
The mean baseline diastolic blood pressure in labetalol group was 100.93 +-6.7 mmHg and it reduced to 93.47 +-7.23 48 hours post-treatment showing statistically significant difference, (p =0.000).
Back in the early 1980s, doctors delayed treatment until systolic blood pressure exceeded 150 mmHg.
IOP of the OD remained consistently above 50 mmHg with medications provided (i.e., travoprost, timolol, brinzolamide, brimonidine tartrate, and mannitol 20%).
