    Objectives: To verify whether there is dependence between corneal thickness and progression of glaucoma, to assess the impact of early changes in the visual field on their progression in time. Methods and Patients: Findings of 132 eyes in 67 patients with primary hypertensive open-angle glaucoma, of 27 men and 40 women, mean age 66 years (28 - 84 years) were evaluated, retrospectively. Two women were included into the set with one eye (the other eye had the visual acuity below 0.1). All patients had compensated IOP after eventual correction to the corneal thickness below 18 mm Hg. None of the patients had been previously treated with brimonidine preparations or suffered from another eye disease. Corneal pachymetry was performed on the ultrasound device SP-100 of Tomey Corporation. The visual field was examined by static perimetry .. View More»
