Corneal Hysteresis as a Risk Factor for Glaucoma Progression: A Prospective Longitudinal Study – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the role of corneal hysteresis (CH) as a risk factor for the rate of visual field progression in a cohort of patients with glaucoma followed prospectively over time.Design: Prospective observational cohort study.Participants: The study group included 114 eyes of 68 patients with glaucoma followed for an average of 4.0±1.1 years. Visual fields were obtained with standard automated perimetry. Included eyes had a median number of 7 (range, 5–12) tests during follow-up.Methods: The CH measurements were acquired at baseline using the Ocular Response Analyzer (Reichert Instruments, Depew, NY). Evaluation of rates of visual field change during follow-up was (Read more...)
