Glaucoma is the main source of irreversible visual impairment around the world. It is evaluated that around 60.5 million individuals had glaucoma in 2010 and that this number is expanding. Numerous patients keep on losing vision regardless of obvious malady control as indicated by customary hazard factors. The motivation behind this audit is to talk about the current discoveries concerning corneal hysteresis, a variable that is believed to be related to the hazard and movement of glaucoma.

Low corneal hysteresis is related to optic nerve and visual field harm in glaucoma and the danger of basic and practical glaucoma movement. Moreover, hysteresis may upgrade intraocular weight (IOP) elucidation: low corneal hysteresis is related to a bigger extent of IOP lessening following different glaucoma treatments. Corneal hysteresis is dynamic and may increment in eyes after lowering of IOP interventions are executed.

It is broadly acknowledged that focal corneal thickness is a prescient factor for the danger of glaucoma movement. Late proof demonstrates that corneal hysteresis likewise gives significant data to a few parts of glaucoma administration. Corneal hysteresis might be more unequivocally connected with glaucoma nearness, the danger of progression, and viability of glaucoma medications than focal corneal thickness.
