A new theory (still being researched and discussed) is that glaucoma causes a remodeling of the cornea that results in lower corneal hysteresis (CH). However, regardless of the causative mechanism, low corneal hysteresis has been correlated with glaucoma progression in early research. I believe the research on that point is substantial enough to act on the information right now, even though more research is warranted.
