The prevalence of a disease is defined as the total number of cases of the disease in the population at a given time, or the total number of cases in the population, divided by the number of individuals in the population. In the last decades a lot of epidemiological studies have been run, in order to define glaucoma prevalence in specific population samples. In this review we will resume some of these studies and we will try to assess the actual prevalence of the glaucoma.
