Retinal Blood Flow in Glaucomatous Eyes with Single-Hemifield Damage – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To examine the hypotheses that in glaucomatous eyes with single-hemifield damage, retinal blood flow (RBF) is significantly reduced in the retinal hemisphere corresponding with the abnormal visual hemifield and that there are significant associations among reduced retinal sensitivity (RS) in the abnormal hemifield, RBF, and structural measurements in the corresponding hemisphere.Design: Prospective, nonrandomized, case-control study.Participants: Thirty eyes of 30 patients with glaucoma with visual field loss confined to a single hemifield and 27 eyes of 27 controls.Methods: Normal and glaucomatous eyes underwent spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and standard automated perimetry. Doppler SD-OCT with a double-circle scanning pattern was (Read more...)
