Macular Morphology in Patients with Optic Nerve Head Drusen and Optic Disc Edema – Corrected Proof

Purpose: In this study we investigated macular morphology, including individual retinal layers, in patients with optic nerve head drusen (ONHD) and optic disc edema (ODE) compared with healthy participants, using high-resolution spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT).Design: Prospective, cross-sectional, observational study.Participants: A total of 67 patients with ONHD, 36 patients with ODE, and 57 healthy participants.Methods: High-resolution spectral domain OCT (Copernicus [OPTOPOL Technology S.A., Zawiercie, Poland] 3-μm resolution, 7×7×2-mm volumetric scans) was used to image macula morphology. Average retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness was measured using a semiautomated method with manual correction of the internal limiting membrane, RNFL, and (Read more...)
