BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to quality the frequency and amount of corneal desquamation from a sodium fluorescein/proparacaine combination (Fluoracaine) as compared with sodium fluorescein/benoxinate combination ophthalmic solution (Fluorox) after Goldmann Applanation Tonometry. METHODS One drop of Fluoracaine was randomly instilled into one eye and one drop of Fluorox was instilled into the opposite eye of the same patient. Intraocular pressures (IOPs) by GAT and tear break-up… 
Comparison of Corneal Thickness After the Instillation of Topical Anesthetics: Proparacaine Versus Oxybuprocaine
TLDR
Oxybuprocaine is similar to proparacaine in terms of the severity of its effect on corneal thickness and should be considered when performing measurements for refractive surgery or central cornea thickness in glaucoma patients.
The Effect of Anesthetic Eye Drop Instillation on the Distribution of Corneal Thickness
TLDR
Topical anesthetic eye drops induce CT increases and decreases at each corneal location; however, the differences are not significant; Nevertheless, a change in the location of the minimum and maximum paracentral thickness occurs in some individuals after corneals anesthesia.
Comparison of two handheld applanation tonometers and the association of central corneal thickness, age, and intraocular pressure in normal and diseased canine eyes.
TLDR
The AccuPen measurements were slightly but significantly lower than the Tono-Pen XL(®) measurements in both normal and diseased canine eyes, while both IOP and CCT tended to decrease with age in normal eyes.
Effect of Oxybuprocaine Eye Drops on Corneal Volume and Thickness Measurements
TLDR
Oxybuprocaine eye drops do not appear to induce a significant corneal swelling and do not affect the measurements when comparing CCT measured with optical or ultrasound devices.
Quantitative central corneal anatomy and anaesthetic eye drops effects: Comparison between 0.4% oxybuprocaine and a combination of 0.1% tetracaine and 0.4% oxybuprocaine
TLDR
It is shown that the combination of 0.1% tetracaine and 0.4% oxybuprocaine anaesthetic eye drops causes higher increases in central corneal thickness values than 0.
Pachymetry before or after applanation tonometry: does it matter?
TLDR
The study suggests that the sequence of the two examinations doesn't matter and the accuracy of central corneal thickness (CCT) measurement is influenced by Goldmann applanation tonometry (GAT) and vice versa.
Corneal Thickness Values Before and After Oxybuprocaine 0.4% Eye Drops
TLDR
This effect of anesthetic eye drops must be considered by refractive surgeons when carrying out preoperative laser in situ keratomileusis corneal thickness measurements.
