Glaucoma constitutes 10% of blindness worldwide which is the third most common cause of blindness with majority of people being undiagnosed in developing countries.
Aims: To assess and compare serum lipid profile between normotensive, non diabetic POAG patients and normotensive, non diabetic non glaucoma controls.
Results: 1: Mean total cholesterol levels were (219±60.010) mg/dl and (191.26±43.167) mg/dl in glaucoma patients and controls respectively and the difference was statistically significant (p < 0>
Conclusion: Higher total cholesterol levels and LDL-C levels were found in glaucoma patients as compared to controls. While there was no significant difference of serum triglycerides, HDL-C, VLDL-C levels between both the groups.

Keywords: Age, Glaucoma, Lipid profile, Open angle, Total cholesterol.
