    Thinner temporal peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer in Stargardt disease detected by optical coherence tomography

    Purpose To evaluate peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with Stargardt disease (STGD). Methods A cross-sectional, monocentric, observational case-control study. Twenty patients (39 eyes) with ABCA4 mutations graded according to the Fishman STGD classification were included. RNFL measurement was performed using Heidelberg Spectralis SD-OCT. RNFL thickness in STGD patients was compared to age-matched data of healthy individuals provided by the device’s manufacturer. A manual readjustment of the optic disc-fovea angle was performed when needed. Results The mean age at first diagnosis of STGD was 22.9 years (range ...
