The corneas of people with glaucoma seem to exhibit different qualities than those who do not suffer from this condition.
A study out of Paris shows that corneas affected by glaucoma are more likely to become deformed and have less elasticity than healthy corneas. A study of almost 500 eyes with and without glaucoma showed that glaucomatous eyes were more likely to have a higher corneal resistance factor (CRF) and lower corneal hysteresis (CH) – both signs of poor corneal biomechanics. These findings were presented at the French Society of Ophthalmology; Source: PCONSupersite
