Macular Imaging in Highly Myopic Eyes With and Without Glaucoma – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To determine how evaluations of macular structures on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography compare with those of the optic disc and circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in discriminating between highly myopic eyes with and without glaucoma.Design: Retrospective, comparative study.Methods: The appearances of ganglion cell layer and RNFL on Spectralis macular scans (Heidelberg Engineering) and optic disc on photographs were evaluated by 2 observers. The receiver operating characteristic regression was conducted for macular ganglion cell complex and circumpapillary RNFL measurements on RTVue-100 (Optovue).Results: Ninety highly myopic eyes (−6.0 to −15.0 diopters; mean deviation [MD], −5.6 ± 5.1 dB) and 91 non–highly myopic (Read more...)
