Medication adherence in patients with glaucoma and disability

JAMA Dec 19, 2021

Hou CH, Pu C, et al. - A decrease in glaucoma medication adherence by up to 17.60% can occur due to certain types of disability, and therefore, policies targeting medication adherence should consider these disability types.

  • This is a population-based cohort study, that comprised 46,468 patients with glaucoma, to assess if disability results in decreased glaucoma medication adherence and if this decrease differs by type of disability.

  • A higher frequency of glaucoma outpatient visits was noted in patients with disabilities than those without disabilities.

  • Having limb disability, being in a vegetative state, and having dementia were found to be linked with 0.226 to 3 fewer outpatient visits and lower medication adherence (by 0.7-17.6 percentage points).
