Central corneal thickness measurements in children

, : Central corneal thickness measurements in children. Klinika Oczna 107(7-9): 442-444

To evaluate central corneal thickness in children. Central corneal thickness was measured with the use of ultrasound pachymeter in 360 children aged 0-14 years. Mean central corneal thickness was 537 microm after the birth and 567 microm in the age of 14 years. Wide differences between minimum and maximum recorded values were observed (410-650 microm) in first 2 years of life, and 420-640 microm in years 2-14. 1. Mean central corneal thickness in children (even in small one's) does not differ significantly from adults and does not change with age. 2. Great differences between minimum and maximum recorded values were observed in children (especially in first two years of life), exceeding the range in adults. 3. IOP measurements in children should be corrected according to the results of central corneal thickness.
