Purpose: Using tonometric methods, it is important to consider the enormous individual variations of corneal thickness especially in patients with glaucoma or diabetes mellitus.
Method: 250 consecutive patients provided for cataract operations were divided in four groups, defined on the basis of their clinical data: patients with glaucoma or diabetes mellitus, patients with glaucoma and diabetes mellitus or only with cataract. The investigations were performed with an ultrasonic device (pachymeter DGH 2000), and the intraocular pressure war measured using the tonometer according to Goldmann. The age of the patients ranged between 50 and 91 years; 79 male and 171 female patients. The functional connections between intraocular pressure and corneal thickness were investigated with the regression analysis.
Results: The mean value of the central corneal thickness in the 250 probands amounted to 556,2 mm, Zurück | Back
