Abstract

In the Andijan region of the Fergana Valley, a special study on glaucoma involving the elderly population has not been carried out. If a conclusion is made based on statistical data, there is a need to monitor glaucomatous processes in this contingent - population, as it happens in the world, and to study the risk factors, as well as the modern regional/regional aspects, changes, scientific, epidemiologic - clinical descriptions of its clinical course. The main reason is that epidemiologic and clinical details about glaucoma are not available in the elderly population at all, or the results of a small number of investigations are completely out of date [3,4,7,14]. Based on this, we dedicated a part of our research to study the mentioned and unsolved issues in the gerontological age population by organizing a 4-year clinical-epidemiological monitoring in the conditions of Andijan. We describe the obtained results below.
