    The structure and function of the macula in patients with advanced retinitis pigmentosa
    Purpose: To assess the structure and function of the macula in advanced retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Methods: Twenty-nine eyes of 22 patients with RP were compared against 17 control eyes. Time-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) data were processed using OCTRIMA as a means of quantifying Stratus OCT images. The thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), ganglion cell layer and inner plexiform layer complex (GCL+IPL), inner nuclear layer and outer plexiform layer complex (INL+OPL) and the outer nuclear layer (ONL) were measured. Multifocal electroretinography (mfERG) was performed; two groups were formed based on the mfERG findings. Fourteen eyes ...
