I whole heartedly appreciate the work conducted by Chan Yun Kim et al in studying the treatment patterns and medication adherence of patients with glaucoma in South Korea.This study concluded that medication non adherence was seen more commonly in males , increased daily number of administration and increase in the number of eyedrops. We have also conducted a similar study at our centre in North India and would like to share our results .Our results are in agreement to the work conducted by Chan Yun Kim stating that increased number of instillation and increased number of eyedrops contribute significantly to medication non adherence. However, in our study we also found that medication adherence varies in different severity grades of glaucoma with severe stages being significantly more adherent than mild to moderate stages of glaucoma.Additionally, there was no difference found in medication adherence among males or females.
We again express our gratitude to the researcher in enlightening our minds regarding medication adherence in South Korean population.
