    Association of Spectral-Domain OCT With Long-term Disability Worsening in Multiple Sclerosis

    Objective: To evaluate whether a retinal spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) assessment at baseline is associated with long-term disability worsening in people with multiple sclerosis (PwMS), we performed SD-OCT and Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) assessments among 132 PwMS at baseline and at a median of 10 years later. Methods: In this prospective, longitudinal study, participants underwent SD-OCT, EDSS, and visual acuity (VA) assessments at baseline and at follow-up. Statistical analyses were performed using generalized linear regression models, adjusted for age, sex, race, MS subtype, and baseline disability. We defined clinically meaningful EDSS worsening as an increase of ≥2.0 ...
