We present a method for estimating the 5-year risk that an individual with ocular hypertension will develop primary open angle glaucoma (POAG).

The method may be useful to clinicians and patients in deciding the frequency of tests and examinations and the potential benefit of starting treatment.

More information is available in the manuscript, "A Validated Prediction Model for the Development of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma in Individuals with Ocular Hypertension," published in Ophthalmology 2007; 114(1):10-19. A list of publications from the OHTS and the EGPS is available in our publications section.
