In a recent study published in the journal Nutrients, researchers examined the relationship between ultra-processed food (UPF) intake and glaucoma incidence among Spanish university graduates.

Background
Glaucoma is a leading cause of lifelong blindness globally, defined by the gradual loss of retinal ganglion cells. Elevated intraocular pressure, advanced age, non-Caucasian race, and family history increase glaucoma risk. However, alterable environmental variables like nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle are increasingly associated with its development. Alternative and complementary medicine for glaucoma therapy has gained popularity, but more study is required to tap their therapeutic potential. Nutrition is gaining scientific interest due to UPF ingredients heavy in salt, sugar, and fat. Previous research implies a link between food and glaucoma risk; however, the relationship is ambiguous. Further study is required to apply these findings to clinical care practices.

About the study
In the present observational, prospective cohort study, researchers investigated whether consuming UPF increases the incidence of glaucoma among university graduates in Spa
