    Peripheral lamina cribrosa depth in primary open-angle glaucoma: a swept-source optical coherence tomography study of lamina cribrosa

    Purpose To investigate peripheral lamina cribrosa depth (PLCD) and its vertical-horizontal difference in eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Methods Patients with POAG (n = 90 eyes) and age-matched healthy individuals (n = 90 eyes) underwent swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) scans centered at the optic discs. The PLCD was defined as the vertical distance between the most peripheral visible end of anterior lamina cribrosa (LC) surface and the reference plane connecting the Bruch’s membrane openings. The PLCD in each quadrant region and the vertical-horizontal PLCD difference were compared between the POAG and healthy eyes. The clinical factors associated with increased ...
