    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements in black and white children with large cup-to-disc ratios
    Children with large optic nerve head cups often pose diagnostic difficulty due to concern over possible glaucoma. This study's purpose was to evaluate optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurement of the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thickness in healthy eyes of black and white children, comparing values for eyes with large cup-to-disc ratios against those with small cup-to-disc ratios (normal controls). Using Stratus OCT (OCT 3) (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA) a fast macular thickness and fast RNFL 3.4 protocol were performed on normal eyes of normal children. Included were children (aged 5-17 years) with normal ...
