    Hypodense Regions (“Holes”) in the Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer in Frequency-Domain OCT Scans of Glaucoma Patients and Suspects
    Purpose: To better understand hypodense regions (“holes”) that appear in the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) of frequency-domain optic coherence tomography (fdOCT) scans of patients with glaucoma and glaucoma suspects. Methods: Peripapillary circle (1.7 mm radius) and cube optic disc fdOCT scans were obtained on 208 eyes from 110 patients (57.4±13.2 yrs) with glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON) and 45 eyes of 45 controls (48.0±12.6 yrs) with normal fundus exams. Holes in the RNFL were identified independently by 2 observers on the circle scans. Results: Holes were found in 33 (16%) eyes of 28 ...
