At a recent education event one of our attendees asked me to find out the incidence of ocular hypertension in the general population. I could not identify a study noting this incidence. Jim Thimons and I talked about historical 4% incidence of ocular hypertension in the general population.

Can anyone cite a study?

Thanks
