    Choroidal Thickness Measured by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography: Factors Affecting Thickness in Glaucoma Patients
    Purpose: To measure choroidal thickness and to determine parameters associated with it.Design: Cross-sectional study.Participants: Seventy-four glaucoma patients and glaucoma suspects.Methods: Spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) scans were obtained to estimate average choroidal thickness in a group of glaucoma suspects and glaucoma patients. The average thickness was calculated from enhanced depth SD-OCT images and manually analyzed with Image J software. Open-angle glaucoma, open-angle glaucoma suspect, primary angle-closure glaucoma, primary angle closure, and primary angle-closure suspect were defined by published criteria. Glaucoma suspects had normal visual fields bilaterally. Glaucoma was defined by specific criteria for optic disc damage ...
