Structure and Clinical Significance of Central Optic Disc Pits – Corrected Proof

Objective: To assess the structure of central optic disc pits (ODPs) using enhanced-depth imaging optical coherence tomography (EDI OCT) and to ascertain their clinical significance. Design: Prospective, cross-sectional study. Participants: Patients with an ophthalmoscopically visible central ODP in either eye, irrespective of accompanying ocular disease, were enrolled from the neuro-ophthalmology and glaucoma referral practices. Each subject with a central ODP was matched with 2 healthy subjects with normal-appearing optic disc within 5 years of age.
