Background:-Glaucoma, which is the third most common cause of blindness and is responsible for 10% of blindness worldwide, the majority of those affected in developing countries are unaware that they have the disease and visual impairment. Aims:-To asses and compare serum lipid profile between normotensive, non-diabetic glaucoma patients and healthy controls. Results:-Mean total cholesterol value in glaucoma patients and controls were (162.52  30.72) mg/dl and (137.07 28.09) mg/dl
