These findings may have significant implications for daily functional mobility in older adults with glaucoma, as dynamic balance and mobility tasks may be sensitive predictors of functional fitness for patients in early stages of glaucoma. Furthermore, mobility scores in patients with

The Timed Up and Go is a common test of functional mobility among older adults, and it was found that older adults who could complete the test in 20 s have been shown to walk at a gait speed that should be enough for

, had improved functional mobility (2.9 s faster on TUG; Vreugdenhil et al., 2012 ). These results are consistent with the current study, as we also found improved TUG times (6.8 s). We attribute the bigger improvement in our study to the fact that our participants started at slower TUG times, with
