Objective: To compare the central corneal thickness (CCT) in pseudoexfoliation glaucoma (PXG)patients with healthy adults.
Study Design: Cross-sectional comparative study.
Place and Duration of Study: Armed Forces Institute of Ophthalmology Rawalpindi, from Dec 2009 to Feb 2011.
Material and Methods: 30 patients having PXG (Group A) and 30 healthy adults having normal intraocular pressure (Group B) were included in the study. Intraocular pressure (IOP) in both groups was measured using gauged Goldmann applanation tonometer (GAT).Central corneal thickness (CCT) was measured with an ultrasonic pachymeter.
Results: The comparison of Mean CCT in both Groups showed that Mean CCT was significantly lesser ( p-value
