1. U-Shaped Effect of Blood Pressure on Structural OCT Metrics and Retinal Perfusion in Ophthalmologically Healthy Subjects

    U-Shaped Effect of Blood Pressure on Structural OCT Metrics and Retinal Perfusion in Ophthalmologically Healthy Subjects

    Purpose: We wanted to investigate the association of blood pressure (BP) status with the ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness of nonglaucomatous eyes and to elucidate whether this effect is related to vascular metrics proxying retinal perfusion. Methods: For this case-control study, we prospectively included 96 eyes of 96 healthy subjects (age 50-65) from a large-scale population-based cohort in the northern Netherlands (n = 167,000) and allocated them to four groups (low BP, normal BP [controls], treated arterial hypertension [AHT], untreated AHT). We measured macular GCIPL and RNFL (mRNFL) and peripapillary RNFL (pRNFL) thicknesses ...
