DECREASED CORNEAL HYSTERESIS AND GLAUCOMATOUS VISUAL FIELD LOSS

According to this study in Ophthalmology:

The corneal hysteresis (CH) measurements were significantly associated with risk of glaucoma progression. Eyes with lower CH had faster rates of visual field loss than those with higher CH. The prospective longitudinal design of this study supports the role of CH as an important factor to be considered in the assessment of the risk of progression in patients with glaucoma.
