    Changes of Neuroretinal Rim and Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Assessed by Optical Coherence Tomography After Filtration Surgery in Glaucomatous Eyes

    Purpose: Lowering the intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) with filtration surgery can induce morphological changes to the bulbus and structures of the retina. In this study, we have evaluated changes of Bruch’s membrane-based parameters and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) derived by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in eyes that have undergone glaucoma filtration surgery. Patients and Methods: SD-OCT imaging of the optic nerve head (ONH) and of the RNFL was performed in 54 eyes of 54 patients with medically uncontrolled POAG before and after IOP-lowering surgery (trabeculectomy or deep sclerectomy). The ONH parameter ...
