Decrease Corneal Hysteresis in Steroid-Induced Ocular Hypertension: A Case Report.

Mil Med. 2013 Jul;178(7):e862-e864

Authors: Molinari JF

PURPOSE: To describe a case of steroid-induced ocular hypertension in which a clinical significant increase in intraocular pressure resulted with a corresponding corneal hysteresis decreased response.
METHOD: A case report is presented in which a 62-year-old white male who was diagnosed with rosacea meibomitis and treated with topical antibiotic steroid combination ointment responded such.
CONCLUSION: This case report illustrates a reverse model of the topical antiglaucoma medication studies recently described of decrease in intraocular pressure with an increase in corneal hysteresis with the application of topical prostaglandins and beta-blocker compounds. This may provide additional insight into how the biomechanical properties of the cornea and tunics of the eye respond to local applications of different ocular medications.
