  This study aimed to assess a meta-analysis of the association of XRCC1 polymorphisms with the risk of various ophthalmologic diseases in Asian population. This meta-analysis was performed by critically reviewing reveals 38 studies involving 1373 cases and 1745 controls. Among all the eligible studies, one focused on Arg194Trp polymorphism, nine described the Arg399Gln and no article investigated on Arg280His. There was a large between-study heterogeneity in ORs of individual studies of the dominant model (χ2 = 74.18, I2 =58.9%, p = 0.013) and the additive (χ2 = 56.18, I2 = 41.4%, p = 0.091) models, but a moderate heterogeneity in the recessive model (χ2 = 72.27, I2=78.8%, p = 0.000) was observed. So, we pooled the results using the random-effect analysis and found that Arg399Gln has a weak relation with ophthalmologic disease in the recessive (OR = 0.96, 95% CI: 0.64-1.44), the dominant (OR = 1.05, 95% CI: 0.82-1.33) and the additive (OR = 1.15, 95% CI: 0.77-1.70) and models. The present meta-analysis correspondingly shows that comprising diverse population is very important since susceptibility loci might vary indifferent ethnic groups. To ratify our findings, widespread studies with enlarged sample size and various populations are essential to explain the role of all polymorphism of XRCC1 genes in the pathogenesis of ophthalmologic diseases. Finally, our meta-analysis showed Arg399Gln variant was not associated with increased ophthalmologic diseases risk via dominant and recessive modes among Asian population.
