Introduction: To measure the central corneal thickness(CCT) in patients with Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome
without glaucoma (PXS) and Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome with glaucoma(PXG) using ultrasonic
pachymetry and compare the two.
Materials and Methods: The study was conducted on 210 patients. 70 patients were with
pseudoexfoliation syndrome, 70 were pseudoexfoliation glaucoma and 70 were healthy individuals. Central
corneal thickness was measured using ultrasonic pachymetry.
Results: Central corneal thickness is significantly thinner in patients with PXG (51522.94mm) than in
patients with PXS (52521.22mm) and control group (52823.35mm) with p value < 0> Conclusion: The study shows that corneas are thinner in patients with pseudoexfolaition glaucoma (PXG)
as compared to pseudoexfoliation syndrome without glaucoma (PXS) and controls (CNT).

Keywords: Central corneal thickness, Pseudoexfolaition syndrome, Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma, Ultrasonic pachymetry.
