    Influence of Correction of Ocular Magnification on Spectral-Domain OCT Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Measurement Variability and Performance

    Purpose: To analyze the influence of ocular magnification on the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurement and its performance as acquired with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods: SD-OCT measurements from 108 normal eyes (59 subjects) and 72 glaucoma eyes (58 patients) were exported and custom software was used to correct RNFL measurements for ocular magnification. RNFL prediction limits in normal subjects, structure-function relationships, and RNFL performance for detection of glaucoma were compared before and after correction for ocular magnification (Bennett's formula). Association of disc area with cross-sectional RNFL area was explored. Results: The median (interquartile range ...
