    Retinal nerve fibre layer and peripapillary vascular density by optical coherence tomography angiography in schizophrenia

    Clinical relevance : Schizophrenia is a progressive disease. Analysis of retinal nerve fibre layer and peripapillary vascular density by optical coherence tomography angiography in schizophrenia patients may help to explain the pathophysiology of the disease. Background : Both macular and optic nerve microvascular structures can be visualised with optical coherence tomography angiography. Few studies have evaluated retinal vessels in patients with schizophrenia. Some of these studies suggest that larger retinal venules are associated with the severity of psychotic symptoms. Methods : This study evaluated retinal nerve fibre layer thickness and peripapillary vascular density by optical coherence tomography angiography in 22 eyes of 22 ...
