    Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness in Dominant Optic Atrophy: Measurements by Optical Coherence Tomography and Correlation with Age
    Purpose: To measure the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness by means of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with dominant optic atrophy (DOA).Design: Cross-sectional study.Participants: Thirty-three patients from 15 pedigrees with DOA harboring heterozygous mutations in the OPA1 gene and 43 healthy subjects were enrolled.Methods: The RNFLs of DOA patients were studied by OCT and compared with those of 43 healthy subjects matched for age and optic nerve head (ONH) size.Main Outcome Measures: Retinal nerve fiber layer thickness.Results: Dominant optic atrophy patients revealed a significant RNFL thickness reduction in all quadrants, with a preferential ...
