Background and Objective: Intraocular pressure (IOP) depends on a variety of local and systemic factors, including systemic blood pressure. This study conducted to analyze the correlation between IOP and blood pressure (BP).
Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted in Ophthalmology Clinic Primasatya Husada Citra Hospital Surabaya from September 2021 until October 2021 with consecutive sampling. The statistic analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis test and Pearson correlation test in SPSS program version 24.0.
Results: A total 115 patients were included, 69 (60%) females and 46 (40.0%) males. Mean age was 35.78 ± 11.64 years old. This study revealed a significant difference in intraocular pressure in both eyes between subjects in four categories of BP (p=0.000). Positive correlation was found between IOP and BP of the right eyes (R = 0.393, P = 0.000) and left eyes (R = 0.363, P = 0.000).
Conclusion: There was a statistically significant correlation between IOP and BP (p=0.000), which the higher BP, the higher IOP in both eyes.
