Abstract

Elevated IOP is one of the most consistent risk factors for the development or progression of glaucoma which has been associated with various systemic factors. The present study was designed to assess the influence of body mass index, serum lipid profile and atherogenic index on intraocular pressure in postmenopausal women. Sixty premenopausal and sixty postmenopausal women were included in this study. IOP was assessed using Goldmann applanation tonometer. In each subject body mass index and Serum lipids and atherogenic index were analyzed. Mean IOP was significantly (P<0.001) higher in postmenopausal than in premenopausal group. Atherogenic index, Serum lipid parameters except HDL-C ( High density lipoproteins – Cholesterol) was significantly increased (P<0.001 ) and showed a significant positive correlation with IOP in post-menopausal group. The lipid markers and the increased BMI might be suggested as independent risk factors for elevation of IOP in postmenopausal women
