Brief Summary:
In this study, we are aiming to identify the patterns of glaucoma observed and treated at Glaucoma Subspecialty Clinics of Kasr Al-Aini Hospital, Cairo University in Cairo, Egypt and corresponding clinics in Sadguru Netra Chikitsalaya Post Graduate Institute of Ophthalmology in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India during the year 2018. We are hoping that this study would provide an update on current statistics available on Indian population as well as provide novel numbers on the prevalence of glaucoma and its patterns in one of the largest tertiary care hospitals in Egypt. These results will then be compared to patterns observed in other epidemiological studies done in other countries.
