Abstract

PURPOSE: To study the changes in IOP on postural variation and thus enable to understand its importance in early detection and treatment of glaucoma.MATERIALS AND METHODS: All 90 patients underwent thorough ophthalmological evaluation and divided into the 3 groups as primary open angle glaucoma on treatment, newly diagnosed primary open angle glaucoma and controls and changes in IOP on postural variation noted by measuring in sitting, supine at 0 minute, at 30 minutes and again in sitting position. RESULTS: There occurred a significant increase in IOP in newly diagnosed POAG without treatment (3.46 mm Hg) compared to controls (1.92 mm Hg) and POAG on treatment (2.38 mm Hg) at 30 minutes of supine position.
