It is estimated that in 2040 there will be around 111.8 million patients with glaucoma, reaching a 3.5% prevalence in patients between 40 and 80 years old; This situation can be preventable if we can identify early the cases at risk of developing the disease, who correspond to the suspected diagnosis of glaucoma.
