    Structural abnormalities associated with glaucoma using swept-source optical coherence tomography in patients with systemic sclerosis

    Purpose: Vasospasm represents an early event in systemic sclerosis (SSc). Ocular vasospasm may induce optic nerve head (ONH) damage and has been involved in the pathogenesis of glaucoma, especially normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). We aimed to investigate the presence of structural abnormalities associated with NTG using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) and to correlate the OCT parameters with clinical, capillaroscopy and digital blood flow measures in patients with SSc. Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 40 patients with SSc and 23 age-matched controls were included. The following parameters were measured using SS-OCT: mean and sectoral retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness, macular ...
