We herein wish to provide data additional to those reported in our previous review (Tsolaki et al1) concerning the association between Helicobacter pylori ( H. pylori) infection and primary open-angle glaucoma. These data were not available in the time period when the review paper was submitted and accepted for publication, and we believe that they need to be added because they further reinforce this association.
