We analysed the corneal thickness of 100 corneas of 100 healthy subjects (mean age 30.87±7.76 years; range, 19 to 54 years old) with the Orbscan Topography System II (Orbscan, Inc., Salt Lake City, UT. USA). The means of five consecutive measurements of the central and paracentral corneal thickness were obtained. No significant differences in mean corneal thickness between women and men at central (p=0.477), nasal (p=0.247), superonasal (p=0.242), inferonasal (p=0.554), temporal (p=0.538), superotemporal (p=0.524) and inferotemporal (p=0.860) corneal locations were found. In sum, there are no differences in mean central and paracentral corneal thickness values between women and men. ER -
