Mean Ocular Perfusion Pressure


Information

Mean Ocular Perfusion Pressure (MOPP) is used to determine the risk of glaucoma. If this value is below 50 mmHg, then this is associated with higher prevalence of glaucoma.

In order to calculate this, we first calculate Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP):

$$ MAP = Diastolic BP + \frac{1}{3}(Systolic BP - Diastolic BP)$$

Next, we can determine MOPP:

$$ MOPP = \frac{2}{3}(MAP - IOP) $$
