musculoskeletal injury during data collection. Participants’ level of ambulation was assessed using the Functional Mobility Scale ( Graham, Harvey, Rodda, Nattrass, & Pirpiris, 2004 ). The scale required participants to attempt to walk 5, 50, or 500 m, while ratings of 1–6 were recorded according to if, and how

the postmenopausal population ( Lomas-Vega, Hita-Contreras, Mendoza, & Martínez-Amat, 2012 ). A higher score in the FES-I correlates with a greater fear of falling. Dynamic Balance The Timed Up and Go (TUG) test is a simple, valid, and reliable method to assess functional mobility and dynamic balance

, & Krotish, 2013 ). Timed Up and Go Test Timed Up and Go test (TUG) is a functional mobility test that requires participants to stand up from an armchair, walk 3 m, turn around, walk back to the chair, and return to a seated position. The TUG has been widely used as a valid and reliable test to monitor

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
