CPAP & INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE - CONSENSUS OF OPINION
#1
CPAP & INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE - CONSENSUS OF OPINION
A friend of mine had developed severe glaucoma partially due to 10 years of CPAP and is going blind despite multiple surgeries.

 Advanced Intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction is the only known modifiable risk factor and his IOPs are very low, yet he's still losing because the nerve heads are so eroded. Assessments of the optic discs are the best determinant about changes.
 
This is obviously a relevant enough topic and I see previous threads discussing such.
 
Any recent updates as to a consensus of opinion?
 
Here is a study from 2008.
