Different studies have stated that eyes with less central corneal thickness are in a higher risk of developing losses in the visual field in subjects with normotensive glaucoma. Low central corneal thickness has been identified too as a risk for developing glaucoma. That is why central corneal thickness has become an important biometric factor and is an essential part of the glaucoma patient's evaluation.
