Purpose. Previous cross-sectional Japanese studies have shown that intraocular pressure (IOP) decreases with age. However, central corneal thickness (CCT) variation should also be considered when examining the relationship between age and IOP, since tonometry has an inherent measurement error due to CCT variations. This study investigates the influence of CCT variation on the age-IOP relationship in a Japanese population. Methods. The right eyes of 1317 subjects from 40 to 80 years old selected… Expand
The relationship of intraocular pressure with age, systolic blood pressure, and central corneal thickness in an asian population.
TLDR
Age, CCT and sBP are significant determinants of IOP in persons aged 40 to 80 years, with CCT being a more important determinant in younger persons. Expand

TLDR
In Chinese university students aged 16-26 years old, higher IOP is associated with younger age, higher myopic refractive error, higher thickness of the central cornea, and shorter AL. Expand
The Effect of Age and Gender on the Intraocular Pressure in Koreans: A Cross-sectional Study
TLDR
In a multiple regression analysis, the IOP trend in each age group was quite different from each other in a large Korean population, and it was suggested that women may have a steeper increasing slope (or less steep decreasing slope) of IOP with age than men. Expand
The Association of Central Corneal Thickness and Intraocular Pressure Measures by Non-Contact Tonometry and Goldmann Applanation Tonometry among Glaucoma Patients
TLDR
The study found an association with age but independent of gender and ethnicity since there was no significant relationship between these variables, and a significant association between CCT and NCT. Expand
Commingling analyses of central corneal thickness and adjusted intraocular pressure in an older Australian population.
TLDR
No evidence of a single major genetic determinant for central corneal thickness is found in a large, population-based sample and previous results suggesting the presence of a major locus for IOP do not appear to be confounded by the influence of CCT. Expand
Intraocular Pressure and Associated Factors: The Central India Eye and Medical Study
TLDR
Low mean IOP was found when compared with other epidemiologic studies and this may be explained by the low central corneal thickness found in the study population. Expand
The relationship between central corneal thickness and the optic disc in an elderly population: the Bridlington Eye Assessment Project
TLDR
Elderly white eyes with normal fields have CCTs that are normally distributed, with those from diabetic persons having greater CCTa than non-diabetic patients, and no clear evidence of a relationship between CCT and HRT2 optic disc parameters used in glaucoma diagnosis was found. Expand
Longitudinal analysis of age-related changes in intraocular pressure in South Korea
TLDR
IOP was significantly decreased with age, although the amount of change was small, and in women and older age groups, IOP was less decreased than that of men and young age groups. Expand
Factors Affecting Intraocular Pressure Measured by Noncontact Tonometer
TLDR
In multiple regression analysis, IOP was found to be associated with gender, refractive error, CCT, and the presence of diabetes mellitus (DM). Expand
Factors Influencing Central Corneal Thickness in a Turkish Population
TLDR
CCT was correlated with Kh-Kv and IOP in correlation analysis but in multivariate regression analysis only Kv appeared to influence corneal thickness. Expand

TLDR
Variation in CCT is a significant source of variation in IOP measurements between individuals, and measurement of corneal thickness should be considered when assessing IOP as a risk factor for glaucoma in east Asians. Expand
Human corneal thickness and its impact on intraocular pressure measures: a review and meta-analysis approach.
TLDR
The "normal" central corneal thickness (CCT) value in human corneas was determined based on reported literature values for within-study average CCT values, and the reported impact of physiological variables, contact lens wear, pharmaceuticals, ocular disease, and ophthalmic surgery on CCT was assessed.

Distribution of central corneal thickness and its association with intraocular pressure: The Rotterdam Study.
TLDR
Mean central corneal thickness was similar to that found in clinical studies, was slightly higher in patients with ocular hypertension, and was significantly lower in Patients with primary open-angle glaucoma, and intraocular pressure was positively related with central corNEal thickness. Expand
Relationship between intraocular pressure and obesity in Japan.
TLDR
It is suggested that obesity is an independent risk factor for increase in intraocular pressure, and cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses showed a significant association between IOP and obesity in both cross-sectionally and longitudinal analysis. Expand
Age-related changes in intraocular pressure in a large Japanese population: a cross-sectional and longitudinal study.
TLDR
The authors found an inconsistency in the change in IOP against age between cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis and suspected that birth cohort differences in ocular characteristics influence IOP in the Japanese population. Expand
Distribution of intraocular pressure. The Barbados Eye Study.
TLDR
The results showed that open-angles glaucoma and a high IOP alone have a different distribution by sex; although open-angle glau coma was more frequent in men, ocular hypertension was morerequent in women. Expand
Relationship between corneal thickness and measured intraocular pressure in a general ophthalmology clinic.
TLDR
The CCT measurement is desirable in patients attending for glaucoma assessment in a district general hospital to avoid misclassification resulting from the relationship between CCT and tonometric pressure. Expand
Association between ocular pressure and certain health parameters.
TLDR
The value of the epidemiologic approach to detection of factors responsible for ocular hypertension is stressed, and the skewness was not fully explained by any of these factors or their combinations. Expand

TLDR
The data confirm that, in a general population, intraocular pressure is associated with important systemic and ocular characteristics and should be considered in further research on determinants of IOP. Expand
The effect of age on human corneal thickness
TLDR
It is suggested that ageing has no significant effect on human corneal thickness between the ages of 16 to 75 years and power analysis shows that at least 80 subjects are needed in each age group before a statistically reliable test of the null hypothesis is possible. Expand
