    Glaucoma Detection Ability of Ganglion Cell-Inner Plexiform Layer Thickness by Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in High Myopia

    Purpose: To compare the glaucoma detection ability of macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) thickness measured with Cirrus spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) with that of peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in high myopia. Methods: In 49 highly myopic and 54 non-highly myopic glaucoma patients along with 78 healthy myopic subjects, two scans, including one macular scan and one peripapillary RNFL scan, were obtained using Cirrus SD-OCT. For 44 randomly selected glaucoma patients, three macular scans were taken for reproducibility measurements. The glaucoma detection abilities of macular GCIPL and peripapillary RNFL thicknesses were compared between the highly myopic ...
