Obstructive sleep apnea linked to glaucoma
Glaucoma is an eye disease that can lead to blindness. This article discusses research that patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are at risk of developing glaucoma. And this study showed that OSA is an independent risk factor for developing glaucoma and that OSA is not just a marker of poor health, which also could lead to glaucoma. So if you have OSA, see your eye doctor if you are having any problems with your eyes.
