Peripapillary Choroidal Thickness in Both Eyes of Glaucoma Patients With Unilateral Visual Field Loss – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To investigate whether peripapillary choroidal thickness in perimetrically affected eyes of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) patients differs from that in perimetrically unaffected fellow eyes and eyes of healthy controls.Design: Retrospective, comparative, cross-sectional study.Methods: Thirty-one POAG patients with unilateral visual field loss and 31 healthy controls were included. Eyes were divided into 3 groups: 31 eyes in group A (eyes with visual field loss), 31 eyes in group B (perimetrically unaffected fellow eyes), and 31 eyes in group C (age- and sex-matched controls). A 360-degree 3.4-mm diameter peripapillary circle scan was performed for retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) assessment using (Read more...)
