Study: Baseline focal loss volume seen on OCT predictive of conversion to perimetric glaucoma

WASHINGTON β€” The most important predictor of conversion of preperimetric eyes to perimetric glaucoma seen on optical coherence tomography in one study was focal loss volume in the ganglion cell complex, a presenter said here. β€œThe goal of this substudy is to use Fourier-domain OCT (FD-OCT) to guide the initial treatment of patients at risk for losing visual field from primary open-angle glaucoma,” David Huang, MD, PhD, told colleagues at the American Glaucoma Society meeting. In this substudy of the Advanced Imaging for Glaucoma Study, 55 eyes of 513 preperimetric (Read more...)
