    Impact of high myopia on the performance of SD-OCT parameters to detect glaucoma

    Abstract Background  The aim was to evaluate the effects of high myopia on spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) parameters, as well as on their ability to detect glaucoma. Methods  Ninety-three glaucoma and 86 non-glaucoma patients were divided into highly myopic group (HMG; 90 subjects, ≤ −5 diopters [D]) and emmetropic (EG; 89 subjects, spherical equivalent ≤1 D and ≥ −1D) groups in this cross-sectional comparative study. Macular ganglion cell complex (GCC) and circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cpRNFL) measurements obtained from the algorithms of the SD-OCT system were compared. The effects of refractive errors and glaucoma were assessed using a generalized linear ...
