The influence of central corneal thickness on IOPJanuary 1st 2011
Dr Claes Feinbaum investigates emerging evidence that CCT is an important predictor for the development of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), and that it may be relevant as a predictor of both glaucoma progression and response to IOP-lowering medication

Implanatation of multiple trabecular micro-bypass implants (iStent, Glaukos) in Schlemm's canal following phamoemulsification successfully and significantly reduced IOP for 12 months after implantation, as well as the number of medications required to maintain target IOP
Rates of change may signal POAGDecember 1st 2010
Analyses of data from the Confocal Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy Ancilliary Study to the Ocular Hypertension Treatment study found rim area parameters changed significantly in the eyes that had progression to a primary open-angle glaucoma endpoint compared with eyes that did not.
