    Correlation between circumpapillary and macular retinal nerve fiber layer thickness measured by spectral domain optical coherence tomography and multifocal visual evoked potential in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma

    Purpose This study attempts to examine the relationship between the function of postsynaptic activity of the visual pathway at the level of the striate cortex [multifocal visual evoked potential (mfVEP) responses] and the structural integrity of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) (by measuring the macular and circumpapillary RNFL thickness). Design This was a prospective nonrandomized interventional clinical study. Patients and methods Patients with controlled primary open-angle glaucoma were included in this study. They underwent complete ophthalmic examination, visual field testing, and macular and peripapillary RNFL thickness measurement by a spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) and mfVEP testing. All ...
