Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is linked to increased glaucoma risk in middle-aged and older adults. However, little is known about associations between OSA and glaucoma-related optic disc parameters in young adults. We explored associations between overnight polysomnography-derived measures of OSA and the optic disc in young adults.
