1. Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Analysis in RP Patients Using Fourier-Domain OCT

    purpose. To determine peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFL) abnormalities in patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP) using Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (Fd-OCT) and to evaluate the potential effect of cystoid macular edema (CME) or axial length on RNFL measurements in such patients. methods. Ninety-seven eyes of 52 patients with diagnoses of retinitis pigmentosa or Usher syndrome type II underwent complete ocular examination. Peripapillary RNFL thickness was measured using Fd-OCT in 16 segments from 4 quadrants—temporal (316°-45°), superior (46°-135°), nasal (136°-225°), and inferior (226°-315°). These measurements were compared with age- and disc size-adjusted control values ...
