1. Correlation of Fourier Domain Optical Coherence Tomography Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Maps With Visual Fields in Nonarteritic Ischemic Optic Neuropathy

    BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To correlate peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (NFL) loss and visual field defects in nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with NAION and control subjects were enrolled in a case–control study. Participants were scanned with a Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) system. Peripapillary NFL thickness was averaged in hemispheric, quadrant, and octant divisions. Standard achromatic static perimetry was used to assess visual fields. RESULTS The reproducibility of peripapillary NFL parameters was excellent in both the healthy and NAION groups. Eyes in the NAION group showed a significant decrease of peripapillary NFL thickness ...
