1. An unexpectedly low Stratus optical coherence tomography false-positive rate in the non-nasal quadrants of Asian eyes: indirect evidence of differing retinal nerve fibre layer thickness profiles according to ethnicity

    Aims: To determine the frequency distribution of false-positive Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) results of healthy eyes in terms of peripapillary location. Methods: One eye of each of 137 healthy Korean subjects was included. The false-positive rates (FPRs) relating to retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness parameters were determined. Results: Of the 12 clock-hour positions, the 2 and 4 o’clock positions showed the highest FPRs of 5.1% and 4.4%, respectively, and 7, 8 and 11 o’clock had the lowest FPRs of 0% at Conclusion: The FPR for the non-nasal region was much lower than expected at
