If present, a difference might alter the measurement of intraocular pressure and potentially the assessment and management of glaucoma in these populations. METHODS Central corneal thickness was measured by means of ultrasound pachymetry in African American (n = 56) and Caucasian (n = 32) patients with suspected or confirmed glaucoma and control populations of… CONTINUE READING
