Thin Corneas May Produce Worse Visual Field Changes

The Spearman correlation coefficient between intrasubject differences in CCT vs. intrasubject differences in MD and PSD was 0.36 and -0.31, respectively; both were statistically significant. This study suggests that worse visual field changes tend to occur in the eye with the thinner cornea.
