Long-Term Oral Contraceptive Users are Twice as Likely to Have Serious Eye Disease
Date:11/18/2013

on the development of glaucoma, it indicates that long-term use of oral contraceptives might be a potential risk factor for glaucoma, and may be considered as part of the risk profile for a patient together with other existing risk factors. These include factors such as African American- ethnicity, family history of glaucoma, history of increased eye pressure or existing visual field defects.  Previous studies in the field have shown that estrogen may play a significant role in the pathogenesis of glaucoma.   

"This study should be an impetus for future research to prove the cause and effect of oral contraceptives and glaucoma," said Shan Lin, M.D., lead researcher and professor of clinical ophthalmology at the University of California San Francisco. "At this point, women who have taken oral contraceptives for three or more years should be screened for glaucoma and followed closely by an ophthalmologist, especially if they have any other existing risk factors."

Association Between Oral Contraceptive Use and Glaucoma in the United States (PO339) was presented at the 117th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology which is in session November 15-19 at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. More than 25,000 attendees and 500 companies from 123 countries gather each year to showcase the latest in ophthalmic education, research, clinical developments, technology, products and services.
