Glaucoma Real-World Data

Glaucoma is the Second Leading Cause of Blindness Worldwide.

Qdata® Can Help Advance Glaucoma Treatment.

Qdata Glaucoma is an exclusive dataset reflective of 7.6M+ de-identified U.S. patients with curated glaucoma-specific outcome measures, such as intraocular pressure (IOP) and detailed procedure details.

About Qdata Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a condition that occurs when fluid builds up in the eye, increasing pressure and eventually damaging the optic nerve. Patients with glaucoma may not have symptoms early on, making it challenging to identify the disease. As it progresses, however, patients can experience blind spots in their peripheral vision, and eventually, total vision loss.

Glaucoma medical research becomes more and more important. With millions of Americans struggling with glaucoma, Qdata Glaucoma can supplement medical research and provide meaningful answers to accelerate therapy development.

Verana Health provides glaucoma real-world data to inform researchers of specific insights and to drive better patient outcomes. Through this data module, real-world evidence can help life science companies in shaping therapeutic and treatment strategies.

Key Variables in Glaucoma Research

Curated variables are extracted from EHR data, providing glaucoma real-world data that can be utilized based on your research needs. These include:

Intraocular Pressure (IOP)

IOP refers to the pressure inside the eye and is a clinical measurement found in semi-structured EHR fields.

MIGS Device Brand

MIGS is one solution for patients who are diagnosed early on. This procedure helps reduce IOP, slowing disease progression.

Visual Acuity

Visual Acuity (VA) measures how sharp your vision is at a distance. It is usually tested by reading an eye chart. VA is an outcome measure found in EHR semi-structured fields.


Certain cases of glaucoma can be treated with oral medication or eye drops, helping to reduce IOP.

Unstructured Data Enables Deeper Understanding

Verana Health specializes in delivering real-world glaucoma data and unstructured EHR data from clinician-informed algorithms. By doing so, we  can extract key information on IOP, MIGS procedure details, and more, which can then be analyzed in a reliable manner across large populations.

From this, life sciences companies can gain unprecedented insights on their therapies, down to the brand level, bringing a deeper understanding of treatment patterns and outcomes, safety events, market uptake, and more.
