The risk factors for getting glaucoma will channel into the resultant level of IOP and disc damage. The probability was calculated by the equation Y1 = Y0 + A1e X/T1 using the IOP and cup disc ratio. Accordingly people are classified into: Normal, Ocular hypertension, Possible, Probable, Highly probable and Definite glaucoma. In this way the clinical entities of normal, ocular hypertension, and glaucoma suspect, low tension glaucoma and definite glaucoma cases are precisely digitized and diagnosed. The target IOP is calculated according to the cup disc ratio. The details of combined probability of IOP, C/D ratio and the target IOP will be presented in details.
