Summary
Corneal biomechanics is a relevant topic for research and development in contemporary ophthalmology due to its prospective applications in diagnosis, management, and treatment of several clinical conditions, including glaucoma. The aim of this research project was to investigate the corneal biomechanical properties of glaucoma eyes by comparing the dynamic Scheimpflug biomechanical parameters between untreated glaucoma and control eyes. A retrospective analysis was performed on data of Corvis ST examinations collected from patients who attended an asynchronous glaucoma virtual clinic in a tertiary eye care and training centre in the UK.
