The 92,1 % (210 patients) of the population over 40 years treated at a family physician's office in Morón municipality took part in a glaucoma mass screening. It was found that 9,6 % (20 patients) showed figures of ocular tension exceeding normal values and that 3 patients had normal ocular tension but presented suspicious excavation of the optic disc. Two patients having glaucoma family history were referred to the specialist at the Provincial General Teaching Hospital of Moron in order to confirm the diagnosis.
