We read with great interest the paper by Tsilis et al entitled "Systematic review of the association between Alzheimer’s disease and chronic glaucoma" published recently in this journal.1 The potential overlap in the pathobiological background of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is currently a topic of intense discussion and could provide further insight into both of these complex diseases.
