IMPORTANCE: Understanding the longitudinal intraocular pressure (IOP) changes and potential risk factors in adults is important for future glaucoma control in the aging society. BACKGROUND: Limited longitudinal studies exist in Asia investigating the longitudinal IOP changes and with varying results. DESIGN: Population-based cohort study. PARTICIPANTS: 1405 baseline participants from the Liwan Eye Study. METHODS: All baseline participants were invited for the 10-year follow-up examination in 2013. IOP (by Tonopen), central corneal thickness (CCT; by ultrasound), refractive error (by autorefractor), blood pressure, height and weight were measured per standardized protocol and the presence of ..
