    Structure–function relationship among three types of spectral-domain optical coherent tomography instruments in measuring parapapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness

    Purpose: To compare the relationships of parapapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness among three spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) instruments with visual field sensitivity (VFS). Methods: One hundred and thirteen eyes of 113 Japanese subjects with glaucoma (mean deviation in standard automated perimetry = −8.9 ± 6.7 dB) were imaged by Cirrus, RTVue and 3D OCT. The average hemi-superior and hemi-inferior RNFL thicknesses were obtained. In addition, the structure–function relationship using two retinotopic maps that consisted of six or nine sectors was also evaluated. Decibel (dB) scale and 1/Lamert (1/L) were used to express VFS. RNFL ...
