Abstract: Purpose: To describe the distribution of and factors related to intraocular pressure (IOP) in a healthy adult rural Chinese population in northern China. Methods: The Handan Eye Study is a cross-sectional, population-based study of eye diseases among 6,830 (90.4% response rate) rural Chinese persons aged 30+ years. Participants underwent an interviewer-administered questionnaire and a complete ocular examination, including standardized measurement of IOP with Perkins applanation tonometry. Results: After excluding persons with glaucoma, or those with diseases that have a marked effect on IOP or that preclude accurate IOP measurement, 6,101 persons were included in the current analysis. Mean IOP (mean ± standard deviation) of the study population was 15.0 ± 2.8 mmHg. Men had lower IOP than women (14.6 ± 2.8 mmHg versus 15.4 ± 2.7 mmHg, t = -8.37, P
