1. Structural and Functional Assessment in HIV-Infected Patients Using Optical Coherence Tomography and Frequency-Doubling Technology Perimetry

    Purpose: To assess retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thickness using optical coherence tomography (OCT) on HIV-infected patients without ocular manifestations and to correlate these findings with frequency-doubling technology perimetry (FDT).Design: Cross-sectional study.Methods: setting: Single center.study population: Seventy-three patients (146 eyes) with clinically normal examination classified in 3 groups: group A, HIV-infected patients with CD4 count 100 cells/mm3 since diagnosis; and group C, HIV-negative control subjects.observation procedures: Fast RNFL and fast macula scan strategies on Stratus OCT and Humphrey Matrix 24-2 full-threshold program.main outcome measures: OCT RNFL and macular thicknesses and FDT indices ...
