PURPOSE To investigate the association between corneal biomechanical parameters using the Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA) and glaucoma severity. DESIGN Observational cross-sectional study. METHODS Two hundred ninety-nine eyes of 191 patients with confirmed or suspect glaucoma were recruited at the University of California, San Diego. Corneal hysteresis (CH) and corneal resistance factor (CRF) were obtained from all participants. Standard automated perimetry was done using the 24-2 Swedish… CONTINUE READING
