    Reproducibility of Macular, Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer and Optic Nerve Head Measurements by Optical Coherence Tomography in Rhesus Monkeys

    Purpose. To evaluate repeatability and reproducibility of measurements of the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT), optic nerve head (ONH) and macular inner retinal layer (MIRL) by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) (RTVue) in normal Rhesus monkeys. Method. The experimental study included 15 adult rhesus macaque monkeys. RNFLT, ONH parameters (area of disc, cup and rim; volume of cup and rim; cup/disc ratios) and MIRL thickness were imaged at three separate examinations within one month. Each eye was imaged three times at the first examination, and once at each of the two following examinations. We determined the intra-session and ...
