Association between Glaucoma and At–fault Motor Vehicle Collision Involvement among Older Drivers

A Population-based Study

Presented in part at: the Annual Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), May 3–7, 2015, Denver, Colorado.Results

Drivers with glaucoma (n = 206) had a 1.65 times higher MVC rate (95% CI, 1.20–2.28; P = 0.002) compared with those without glaucoma after adjusting for age, and mental status. Among those with glaucoma, drivers with severe visual field loss had higher MVC rates (RR, 2.11; 95% CI, 1.09–4.09; P = 0.027), whereas no association was found among those with impaired visual acuity and CS. When the visual field was subdivided into 6 regions (upper, lower, left, and right visual fields; horizontal and vertical meridians), we found that impairment in the left, upper, or lower visual field was associated with higher MVC rates, and an impaired left visual field showed the highest RR (3.16; P = 0.001) compared with other regions. However, no association was found in deficits in the right side or along the horizontal or vertical meridia

緑内障患者は交通事故を有意に起こしやすいという結果が得られた。

事故の頻度は視野障害形式との関連性が強く

左側の視野障害で強く認められた。

その一方で右側、垂直、水平方向の視野障害との間には

関連性が認められなかった。

海外は左ハンドル右側通行、日本では右ハンドル左側通行

また違った結果がでるのでしょうか?
