New study shows people with glaucoma are at significant risk of Alzheimer’s disease

A large, nationwide study from Taiwan shows that people with a specific type of glaucoma, called normal-tension glaucoma, are at high risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease. The researchers say people with this type of glaucoma should be screened for Alzheimer’s disease. The study will be presented at AAO 2022, the 126th annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
