Impact of Age-related Change of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer and Macular Thicknesses on Evaluation of Glaucoma Progression – Corrected Proof

Objective: To investigate the impact of age-related change of macular and circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measurements on evaluation of glaucoma progression.Design: Prospective, longitudinal study.Participants: A total of 150 eyes of 90 patients with glaucoma and 72 eyes of 40 normal individuals.Methods: Both eyes were imaged by the Cirrus HD-OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA; optic nerve head and macular scans were taken every 4 months for a mean of 45.8 months (range, 35.4–60.6 months). The mean age-related rates of change of macular (including the ganglion cell and inner plexiform layer [GCIPL], inner retina [IR], outer retina [OR], and (Read more...)
