    Evaluation of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Progression in Glaucoma: A Comparison between Spectral-Domain and Time-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
    Objective: To compare the performance of a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) device and a time-domain OCT device to detect retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) progression in glaucoma patients.Design: Prospective study.Participants: One hundred twenty-eight eyes of 81 glaucoma patients.Methods: Patients were followed up at 4-month intervals for at least 24 months for RNFL imaging and visual field examination. Both eyes were imaged by the Cirrus HD-OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin, CA) and the Stratus OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc.) and underwent visual field testing at the same visit. Linear regression analyses between circumpapillary RNFL measurements (average ...
