    Reproducibility of Macular, Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer, and ONH Measurements by OCT in Rhesus Monkeys: The Beijing Intracranial and Intraocular Pressure (iCOP) Study

    Purpose. We evaluated repeatability and reproducibility of measurements of the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT), optic nerve head (ONH), and macular inner retinal layer (MIRL) by RTVue spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) in normal Rhesus monkeys. Methods. The experimental study included 15 adult Rhesus macaque monkeys. RNFLT, ONH parameters (area of disc, cup, and rim; volume of cup and rim; and cup-to-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 ...
