    Detection of Glaucoma Progression by Assessment of Segmented Macular Thickness Data Obtained Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose: To evaluate the clinical utility of segmented macular layer thickness measurement in terms of both glaucoma diagnosis and the ability to detect progression, and to compare such outcomes with those by circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cRNFLT) and total macular thickness (TMT) measurements. Methods: One-hundred-and-forty-one glaucomatous and 61 healthy eyes were included. All glaucomatous eyes were subjected to at least four spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) examinations (mean follow-up; 2.13 years). Segmented macular layers were the macular NFL, GCA (ganglion cell and inner plexiform layer), and outer retinal layer (ORL; from outer plexiform layer to retinal pigment ...
