    Comparing Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography and Standard Automated Perimetry to Diagnose Glaucomatous Optic Neuropathy

    Purpose: To compare the abilities of standard automated perimetry (SAP) and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) in diagnosing eyes with glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON). Methods: In a cross-sectional study, 280 eyes of 175 subjects referred to tertiary eye care center by general ophthalmologists for a glaucoma evaluation underwent retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) imaging with SDOCT. All subjects had at least 2 reliable and repeatable SAP. Two glaucoma experts masked to clinical and SAP results classified the optic nerves into GON and nonglaucomatous groups based on digital optic disc photographs. Ability of SDOCT parameters and ...
