Abstract

Purpose : To examine interrelations between corneal biomechanics, ocular biometric variables and optic disc size (ODS), lamina cribosa depth (LCD) or thickness (LCT) in a healthy population.

Methods : In a cross sectional case-control study, the following measurements were made in 56 eyes of 56 participants: axial length, anterior chamber depth, lens thickness and central corneal thickness using the optical biometer Lenstar LS900; and corneal hysteresis, corneal resistance factor (CRF), Goldman-correlated intraocular pressure (IOPg) and corneal-compensated IOP (IOPcc) using the ocular response analyzer. Serial horizontal enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI OCT) B- scans of the optic nerve head were obtained in each participant. Mean ODS, mean LCD and mean LCT were measured in 11 equally-spaced horizontal B- scans, excluding the LC insertion area under Bruch's membrane and scleral rim.

Results : Data for 40 eyes were available for statistical analysis. LCD was greater in men than women by a mean of 45.34 ± 19.88 µm (95% CI 5.092 - 85.58 µm; P= 0.028; Student's t). LCT was directly correlated with ODS (r= 0.331; P= 0.042). Corneal biomechanical properties and ocular biometrics variables were poorly (non-significantly) correlated with LCD, LCT and ODS.

Conclusions : Insufficient evidence was detected to indicate significant correlation between corneal biomechanical properties or ocular biometric variables and ODS, LCD or LCT.
