During the last 7 years, the intraocular pressure (IOP) of 7000 males and females of different age groups were measured by Goldmann applanation tonometer. The results show a statistically significant decrease of IOP with age after the age of 30 years. They also show a higher reading in females than in males after the age of 40 years.
