    Diagnostic Accuracy of Optical Coherence Tomography and Scanning Laser Tomography for Identifying Glaucoma in Myopic Eyes

    Purpose Ruling out glaucoma in myopic eyes often poses a diagnostic challenge because of atypical optic disc morphology and visual field defects that can mimic glaucoma. We determined whether neuroretinal rim assessment based on Bruch's membrane opening (BMO), rather than conventional optic disc margin (DM)-based assessment or retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, yielded higher diagnostic accuracy in myopic patients with glaucoma. Design Case-control, cross-sectional study. Participants Myopic patients with glaucoma (n = 56) and myopic normal controls (n = 74). Methods Myopic subjects with refraction error greater than −2 diopters (D) (spherical equivalent) and typical myopic optic disc morphology ...
