1. Evaluation of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness and Ganglion Cell Complex Progression Rates in Healthy, Ocular Hypertensive, and Glaucoma Eyes With the Avanti RTVue-XR Optical Coherence Tomograph Based on 5-Year Follow-up

    Evaluation of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness and Ganglion Cell Complex Progression Rates in Healthy, Ocular Hypertensive, and Glaucoma Eyes With the Avanti RTVue-XR Optical Coherence Tomograph Based on 5-Year Follow-up

    Purpose: To determine retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) and ganglion cell complex (GCC) progression rates for healthy eyes and undertreatment ocular hypertensive (OHT) and glaucoma eyes with the Avanti RTVue-XR optical coherence tomography. Materials and Methods: Seventeen healthy subjects (34 eyes), 17 medically treated OHT patients (34 eyes), and 67 medically treated glaucoma patients (122 eyes) were imaged prospectively at 6-month intervals (median follow-up 5.3 y, 11 visits). Results: A minimal negative correlation between baseline RNFLT and RNFLT progression was found in the glaucoma group (r=-0.1708, P=0.0493). In the other groups no correlation between ...
