  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine whether 24-hour fluctuation of intraocular pressure (IOP) is associated with central corneal thickness (CCT) in subjects with ocular hypertension or open angle glaucoma and in age-matched controls. Also to evaluate whether mean IOP reduction as a response to latanoprost (0.005% Xalatan) is associated with CCT, after a 4-weeks period of treatment.

Also, to evaluate whether 24-hour fluctuation of IOP is associated with corneal hysteresis (CH) measured by Ocular Response Analyzer (ORA).

Further study details as provided by Aristotle University Of Thessaloniki:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation analyses between mean central corneal thickness (CCT) and 24-hour intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuation and between mean CCT and mean IOP reduction from baseline after a 4-weeks period of treatment with latanoprost. [ Time Frame: Before and after a 4-weeks period of treatment with latanoprost. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Correlation analyses between corneal hysteresis (CH) and 24-hour intraocular pressure (IOP) fluctuation and between CH and mean IOP reduction from baseline after a 4-weeks period of treatment with latanoprost. [ Time Frame: Before and after a 4-weeks period of treatment with latanoprost. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Exclusion Criteria:

For Eye

  • Use of any ophthalmic medication (drops) during the study (except for natural tears)
  • Inflammation of any aetiology
  • Previous eye surgery or laser
  • Corneal abnormalities (oedema, dystrophies etc) For Subjects
  • Systemic diseases which affect the cornea (such as autoimmune diseases)
