1. Quantification of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness in Normal Eyes, Eyes With Ocular Hypertension, and Glaucomatous Eyes With SD-OCT

    Quantification of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness in Normal Eyes, Eyes With Ocular Hypertension, and Glaucomatous Eyes With SD-OCT
    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To quantitatively evaluate and compare retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness between normal eyes, eyes with ocular hypertension (OHT), and glaucomatous eyes in an Indian population using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). PATIENTS AND METHODS Average and quadrant RNFL values were compared among three groups (66 normal eyes, 55 OHT eyes, and 51 glaucomatous eyes) and the discriminating power of each parameter was evaluated by calculating areas under receiver operator curves (AROCs). RESULTS The mean RNFL thickness was 93.45 ± 16.9 µm in glaucomatous eyes, significantly less than in normal (112.48 ± 6.8 µm ...
