Help and frequently asked questions

Is high intra-ocular pressure the same as glaucoma?


No. It does not necessarily follow that a patient with high intra-ocular pressure (ocular hypertension) will develop glaucoma.

However there is an increased risk of glaucoma among patients who do have ocular hypertension, which is why it should be closely monitored.

To learn more about glaucoma, see our dedicated guide.
