Canadian perspectives in glaucoma management: The role of central corneal thickness

Document Type





Background: To propose consensus working recommendations for the role of central corneal thickness in the management of open-angle glaucoma.
Methods: This work is based on evidence from a review of the glaucoma literature, a Canadian consensus development workshop, and the personal clinical experience of the participating Canadian ophthalmologists.
Results: Guidelines were developed to provide eye care practitioners and their patients with support in the decision-making process for management of glaucoma or those at risk for developing glaucoma.
Interpretation: Further studies will be helpful in understanding the role of central corneal thickness in glaucoma management, and these guidelines will need to be revised periodically as new information becomes available.
