    The detection of macular analysis by SD-OCT for optic chiasmal compression neuropathy and nasotemporal overlap

    Purposes: To assess the diagnostic performance of the macular parameters detected by spectral domain-optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in band atrophy (BA) eyes. Methods: Forty-nine BA eyes with permanent temporal hemianopia and 89 normal eyes were enrolled. Any patients who had nasal visual field loss were excluded. Each participant was imaged by 3D OCT-2000, and 10×10 grids in the macula were automatically allocated. The thickness of the macular retinal nerve fiber layer (mRNFL), ganglion cell layer (GCL)+ (GCL+inner plexiform layer (IPL)), and GCL++ thickness (RNFL+GCL+IPL) in both nasal and temporal hemiretina were calculated and compared between the ...
