Diagnostic Performance of Optical Coherence Tomography Ganglion Cell–Inner Plexiform Layer Thickness Measurements in Early Glaucoma – Corrected Proof

Purpose: To evaluate the glaucoma diagnostic performance of ganglion cell inner–plexiform layer (GCIPL) parameters used individually and in combination with retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) or optic nerve head (ONH) parameters measured with Cirrus HD-OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc, Dublin, CA).Design: Prospective cross-sectional study.Participants: Fifty patients with early perimetric glaucoma and 49 age-matched healthy subjects.Methods: Three peripapillary RNFL and 3 macular GCIPL scans were obtained in 1 eye of each participant. A patient was considered glaucomatous if at least 2 of the 3 RNFL or GCIPL scans had the average or at least 1 sector measurement flagged at 1% to (Read more...)
