The Role of Refractive Error in the Etiology of Glaucoma

The specific aims of this study are to: 1) Determine whether refractive error predicts the development of glaucoma due to direct effects or shared etiology, or both, by conducting a series of genetic analyses of the two conditions; and 2) Determine the contribution of refractive error (myopia) and relevant biological pathways in the development of glaucomatous neurodegeneration.
