Measurement of Scleral Thickness using Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography in Open-Angle Glaucoma Patients with Myopia – Accepted Manuscript

Abstract: Purpose: To use swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT) to image the posterior sclera at the posterior pole and around the optic nerve head (ONH), and measure the subfoveal scleral thickness and laminar thickness to evaluate the relationship between the measured thicknesses and ocular parameters.Design: Prospective, cross-sectional design.Methods: One hundred and twelve glaucoma patients and 46 controls with axial length more than 26 mm were enrolled. Swept-source OCT images were obtained to capture the subfoveal and ONH region. Subfoveal scleral thickness and laminar thickness were measured from obtained B-scan images. To verify the reproducibility of the measurement, intraclass correlation coefficients (Read more...)
