Episode 11: Role Corneal Biomechanics Plays in Glaucoma Management

In this episode, Nathan Radcliffe, MD, of Weill Cornell Medical College and New York-Presbyterian Hospital, explains to series host Steven Vold, MD, of Vold Vision in Fayetteville, Arkansas, why greater understanding of corneal biomechanics may lead to better outcomes for patients. Dr. Radcliffe discusses his recent studies showing that age and low corneal hysteresis are risk factors for optic nerve deterioration. He also explains that hysteresis may be indicative of the risk of glaucoma progression, which may help inform treatment protocols.
