    Difference in correspondence between visual field defect and inner macular layer thickness measured using three types of spectral-domain OCT instruments

    Purpose To compare the relationship between visual field sensitivity (VFS) and macular parameters measured using three spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) instruments and to determine a base level (=floor effect) for macular parameters. Methods We imaged 127 glaucomatous eyes (1 eye per subject) using three different OCT instruments, i.e., the Cirrus , RTVue and 3D OCT devices; 76 normal eyes were evaluated as controls using the same instruments. The thicknesses of the macular retinal nerve fiber layer (mRNFL), ganglion cell layer+inner plexiform layer (GCL/IPL), and mRNFL+GCL/IPL (GCC) were analyzed. The VFS of the area analyzed by ...
