1. Role of the Macular Optical Coherence Tomography Scan in Neuro-Ophthalmology

    Role of the Macular Optical Coherence Tomography Scan in Neuro-Ophthalmology
    Background: Recent improvements in optical coherence tomographic (OCT) resolution and automated segmentation software have provided a means of relating visual pathway damage to structural changes in the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and corresponding soma of the ganglion cells in the inner layers of the macula and also in the outer photoreceptor layer in the macula. Evidence Acquisition: Studies correlating retinal structure with function are reviewed in the context of OCT in optic nerve and retinal disorders. Results: Recently published work provides evidence showing a strong relationship not only between the RNFL and visual threshold in optic nerve disorders but ...
