RNFL changes portend glaucomatous visual field progression

Structural morphology correlated significantly with functional loss in patients with glaucoma and suspected glaucoma, according to a study.The prospective clinical trial included 310 glaucoma suspect and preperimetric eyes and 177 perimetric eyes that underwent time-domain optical coherence tomography and standard automated perimetry at 6-month intervals. Average peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, superior quadrant thickness and inferior quadrant thickness were measured.
