Corneal Thickness and Glaucoma
Königsdörffer E., Augsten R., Senff I.
Purpose: In general, in patients with glaucoma the cornea is thicker than in normals. The corneal thickness influences the tonometric evaluations. Corneal thickness can be modified by local medical treatment. With latanoprost the corneal thickness is supposed to be lower, but it rose after dorzolamid treatment. Therefore, the aim of the study was to clarify if these results are relevant to clinical and practical use.
