Central corneal thickness differences do not explain IOP lowering

June 1, 2003

Fort Lauderdale, FL-Central corneal thickness (CCT) influences IOP measurement and almost certainly plays an important role in pharmacokinetics. However, a recent study found that CCT did not significantly affect mean IOP despite differences in CCT between black and non-black patients who had been treated for open-angle glaucoma (OAG) or ocular hypertension (OHT).
