Corneal hysteresis shows stronger correlation to glaucoma than CCT

April 24, 2015

A review recently published in Current Opinion in Ophthalmology suggests that clinicians incorporate corneal hysteresis measurements into their glaucoma care.

Deol and colleagues reviewed various literature to assess the role of corneal hysteresis in glaucoma risk, diagnosis and progression.

They found that recent studies have shown a strong correlation between corneal hysteresis and glaucoma. Specifically, corneal hysteresis was associated with the presence of glaucoma, the efficacy of treatments and the risk of progression, while central corneal thickness (CCT) is a predictive factor for glaucoma progression risk.
