    Myopic Cleavage of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Assessed by Split-Spectrum Amplitude-Decorrelation Angiography Optical Coherence Tomography

    This case report describes a man in his 50s with primary open-angle glaucoma and myopic cleavage of the retinal nerve fiber layer. Myopic cleavage of the retinal nerve fiber layer, characterized by cuneiformic dark areas near the major retinal vessels, was first reported in 1992 1 and later confirmed. 2 - 4 The cleavage occurs at the superficial retina in eyes with high myopia or epiretinal membrane and may be associated with visual field defects. 4 Stress, such as myopic cleavage of the retinal nerve fiber layer, deformation of the lamina cribrosa, and stretching and compression of the retinal nerve fiber ...
