Abstract
PURPOSE
To evaluate the correlation between central corneal thickness (CCT) and scleral thickness (ST) in glaucoma patients. METHODS: Seventy-eight eyes of 78 patients with no previous history of intraocular surgery and 23 control eyes were enrolled in the present study. For all eyes, CCT, ST, axial length, anterior chamber depth and refractive error were measured by a single examiner. The correlations among the measurements were analyzed. RESULTS: The mean patient age was 57.32 +/- 9.44 years, and the mean CCT was 532.80 +/- 43.75 microm. The mean CCT of ocular hypertension (576.00 +/- 26.59 microm) was thicker than that of the normal control group (530.30 +/- 35.34 microm, p = 0.028), although the mean STs of the groups were not significantly different. No significant correlation was found between CCT and ST (r = -0.073, p = 0.466). CONCLUSIONS: In the present study, no correlation between CCT and ST was observed. In addition, the STs of the groups were not significantly different.
