Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate, by audit, the intraocular pressure (IOP) and central corneal thickness (CCT) of patients attending a routine glaucoma clinic, in order to assess the potential effect of CCT on IOP measures. Data on current IOP (Goldmann), CCT (ultrasound) and glaucoma medications use were collected from 140 patients who presented for a follow-up visit over a 3-month period. Baseline IOP was retrieved from patient records.
