Detection of Glaucomatous Progression by Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To compare the rate of change of circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cRNFL) thickness, macular volume and thickness, and optic nerve head (ONH) parameters assessed using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) between eyes with progressing and nonprogressing glaucoma. Design: Longitudinal, observational study. Participants: Two hundred seventy-nine eyes from 162 glaucoma patients followed for an average of 2.2 years. Methods: Eyes were classified as progressors and nonprogressors according to assessment of optic disc and RNFL photographs and visual field progression analysis. Linear mixed effects models were used to evaluate the overall rate of change of cRNFL thickness, macular volume and (Read more...)
