1. Comparison of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Measurements Using Time Domain and Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography, and Visual Field Sensitivity

    Comparison of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Measurements Using Time Domain and Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography, and Visual Field Sensitivity
    Purpose: To investigate the relationship between the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, as measured by Stratus time domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Stratus OCT) and Cirrus spectral domain OCT (Cirrus HD-OCT), and the severity indices of the visual field (VF) defects in glaucoma patients. Methods: This was a prospective, cross-sectional study. Correlations between the individual VF sensitivity at 52 test points and the Stratus OCT and Cirrus HD-OCT, which determined peripapillary RNFL thicknesses from 6 sectors, were calculated in 54 eyes with open-angle glaucoma and 22 normal control eyes. The association between the RNFL thickness and VF sensitivity ...
