Purpose: To identify differences in corneal hysteresis (CH) between primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), pseudoexfoliative glaucoma patients (PXSG) and a healthy control group. Methods: In this retrospective study, CH was measured with the Ocular Response Analyzer. 90 subjects were evaluated, 30 subjects in each group. One eye per subject was analyzed. Results: In normal eyes, POAG and PXSG, CH was 9.8 ± 1.6, 9.0 ± 1.9 and 8.0 ± 1.5 mm Hg, respectively. CH was significantly lower in PXSG patients than in POAG (p = 0.042) and normal patients (p = 0.0001), but no significance was found between the POAG and the normal group (p = 0.23). Conclusion: CH differs in the different groups and might be considered in glaucoma evaluation. Further studies with larger sample sizes are needed.
