    Evaluation of inner retinal thickness around the optic disc using optical coherence tomography of a rodent model of nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy

    Purpose To clarify the usefulness of optical coherence tomography (OCT) for the objective and quantitative evaluation of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness around the optic disc in a rodent model of nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (rNAION). Methods Inner retinal thickness was measured using OCT before and after rNAION induction. The thicknesses of the RNFL and the inner plexiform layer (IPL) were measured using a histologic preparation before and 56 days after induction. We compared the inner retinal thickness measured by OCT with that measured by the histologic preparation. Results The mean inner retinal thickness around the optic disc of ...
