    The incidence of manifest glaucoma was determined by means of repeated automatic perimetry in a defined general population. It was estimated at 0.24% per year. It was largely independent of age but higher in women than in men and higher in the countryside than in the villages. In fact the incidence of manifest glaucoma was five times higher among women in the countryside than among men in the villages.
