We would like to thank Vodenčarević and associates for their interest in and favorable comments on our study.


They suggested a subanalysis regarding the presence of family history of glaucoma and the association of axial length with intraocular pressure. Unfortunately, our study has a retrospective design and, as such, lacks specific information on the subjects’ parents. Furthermore, we enrolled only normal children without glaucoma, and so information on family history of glaucoma was not available in most cases.


We did not routinely check ocular parameters such as axial length; therefore, comparing axial length with intraocular pressure was not possible. Further prospective study would be required to meet their suggestions.


In closing, we agree with the opinion regarding the importance of public education on pediatric glaucoma. We hope that further prospective research on tonometers for children will facilitate detection of undiagnosed childhood glaucoma.
