BACKGROUND Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a rare, autosomal-inherited, connective tissue disorder characterised by bone fractures, deafness and blue sclera. Additional ocular findings are decreased ocular rigidity, myopia, glaucoma, keratoconus, corneal opacity, small corneal diameter and congenital Bowman's layer agenesis. PURPOSE This cross-sectional, masked, case-control study aimed to assess whether central corneal thickness (CCT) is affected in patients with OI and to focus on the… CONTINUE READING
