We carried out analysis of plasma lipid and lipoprotein levels in 183 patients (92 women and 91 men) referred because of suspected glaucoma. We found an excess of hypertriglyceridemia among the women. Type IV lipoproteinemia was the most common lipoprotein abnormality. Lipid analysis was unhelpful in determining whether glaucoma was present or what type of glaucoma was present. The prevalence of cardiovascular disease was similar among patients with and without a lipoprotein abnormality.
