    Macular parameters of Stratus optical coherence tomography for assessing glaucoma in high myopia

    Background The aim was to assess the macular parameters of glaucoma in highly myopic subjects. Methods In a retrospective study, we enrolled 72 highly myopic eyes (spherical equivalent up to -6.00 D), of which 31 had early to moderate glaucoma and 41 formed a control group. The diagnosis of early to moderate glaucoma was based on glaucomatous visual-field defects with a mean deviation better than -12 dB. All patients underwent imaging with Stratus optical coherence tomography. We subsequently performed analysis for macular volume and thickness parameters between two groups. Results Using Stratus optical coherence tomography, we found significantly lower ...
