  • All values are expressed as mean±SE.

  • *p Value is based on a paired t test.

  • C/D ratio, cup-to-disc ratio, as measured by Heidelberg Retinal Tomograph (HRT II, Heidelberg Engineering GmbH, Heidelberg, Germany); CCT, central corneal thickness; CH, Corneal Hysteresis; CRF, Corneal Resistance Factor; D, dioptres; IOPcc, corneal-compensated intraocular pressure; IOPGAT, intraocular pressure measured by Goldmann tonometry; RNFL, retinal neural fibre layer thickness, as measured by Optical Coherence Tomography (Cirrus HD-OCT, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, California, USA); VF MD, Humphrey 24-2 Swedish Interactive Threshold Algorithm (SITA) visual field (HFA, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, California, USA) mean deviation.
