Clinical relevance: Those with high myopia are more likely to have glaucoma compared to those without myopia and intraocular pressure was a key factor for developing glaucoma. Thus, investigating the distribution of intraocular pressure and associated factors among those with high myopia is of high importance.Background: The aim of this work is to investigate the distribution of intraocular pressure and the correlated risk factors in a highly myopic Chinese population.Methods: A total of 884 Chinese participants with bilateral high myopia (≤ -6.00 D spherical power) were included from the Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center-Brien Holden Vision Institute High Myopia Cohort Study.
