Glaucoma Diagnostic Ability of Ganglion Cell–Inner Plexiform Layer Thickness Differs According to the Location of Visual Field Loss – Corrected Proof

Objective: To determine whether the ganglion cell–inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) or circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cpRNFL) is better at distinguishing eyes with early glaucoma from normal eyes on the basis of the the initial location of the visual field (VF) damage.Design: Retrospective, observational study.Participants: Eighty-four patients with early glaucoma and 43 normal subjects were enrolled. The patients with glaucoma were subdivided into 2 groups according to the location of VF damage: (1) an isolated parafoveal scotoma (PFS, N = 42) within 12 points of a central 10 degrees in 1 hemifield or (2) an isolated peripheral nasal step (PNS, N = (Read more...)
