PURPOSE To compare central corneal thickness (CCT) of patients with normal tension glaucoma (NTG) with that of age-matched normal subjects, patients with open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and ocular hypertension (OH) subjects in Japan. METHODS Central corneal thickness was measured in 79 NTG, 61 POAG, 73 OH, and 50 normal subjects with an ultrasonic pachymeter. One eye for 1 subject randomly selected in each group was used for inter-group comparison. The relationship between CCT and the maximum… CONTINUE READING
