Glaucoma is the main source of worldwide irreversible visual impairment. Display evaluations of worldwide glaucoma pervasiveness are not up-to-date and concentrated for the most part on European family line populaces. We efficiently inspected the worldwide predominance of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) and anticipated the quantity of influenced individuals in 2020 and 2040.

The hierarchical Bayesian approach was utilized to gauge the pooled glaucoma pervasiveness of the populace of age group 40– 80 years alongside 95% credible intervals (CrIs). Projections of glaucoma were assessed considering the United Nations World Population Prospects. Bayesian meta-regression models were performed to survey the relationship between the commonness of POAG and the important variables.

The worldwide predominance of glaucoma for the populace matured 40– 80 years is 3.54% (95% CrI, 2.09– 5.82). The pervasiveness of POAG is most astounding in Africa (4.20%; 95% CrI, 2.08– 7.35), and the commonness of PACG is most astounding in Asia (1.09%; 95% CrI, 0.43– 2.32). In 2013, the number of individuals (aged 40– 80 years) with glaucoma worldwide was assessed to be 64.3 million, expanding to 76.0 million in 2020 and 111.8 million by 2040. In the Bayesian meta-relapse display, men will probably have POAG than women (chances proportion, 1.36; 95% CrI, 1.23– 1.52), and in the wake of changing for age, residence write, reaction rate, and year of study, individuals of African family will probably have POAG than individuals of European lineage (OR, 2.80; 95% CrI, 1.83– 4.06), and individuals living in urban regions will probably have POAG than those in provincial regions (OR, 1.58; 95% CrI, 1.19– 2.04).


The number of people affected with glaucoma all over the world will show an upward trend to 111.8 million by 2040, regardless of people staying in Africa or Asia. These estimated values have their importance to guide the designs of screening, treatment, public health strategies for glaucoma.
