Abstract :

Purpose: To assess the relationship between daily alcohol consumption and intraocular pressure (IOP) in Korean men and women Methods: We explored the effect of daily alcohol intake on high IOP in 7,532 adults who participated in the 2010-2012 Korean National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (KNHANES). Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to assess the relationship between average daily alcohol consumption and an IOP of â?¥ 18 mmHg after adjusting for age, body mass index, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and smoking in each sex group. Results: When adjusted for related factors, the odds of high IOP was 2.57 times (95% confidence interval, 1.239 to 5.314) higher in men with a daily heavy alcohol intake than men with a heavy alcohol intake <1 per month. However, increased odds of high IOP with daily alcohol consumption were not found among women. Conclusions: After adjusting for age and other confounders, there was a significant relationship between daily alcohol consumption and high IOP in men, whereas the relationship was not significant in women.
