To calculate the Prevalence Ratio (PR), Cox’s Proportional Hazard Model Analysis was used. As result, variables that is significantly associated with blindness among new patients with primary glaucoma at this hospital were intraocular pressure (PR = 1,01; 95% CI = 1,01-1,02), glaucoma type, treated patients, interaction between glaucoma type and treated patients (PR = 2,09; 95% CI = 1,36-3,22 for POAG-treated patients; PR = 1,72; 95% CI = 1,20-2,46 for PACG-untreated patients; PR = 1,79 for PACG-treated patiens; compared with POAG-untreated patients), and education level (PR = 1,49; 95% CI = 1,06-2,08 for low level education and PR = 1,37; 95% CI = 0,97-1,92 for no answer compared with high level education).
