    Evaluation of Lamina Cribrosa and Choroid in Nonglaucomatous Patients With Pseudoexfoliation Syndrome Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose : To evaluate the lamina cribrosa (LC) and peripapillary choroid in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PXS). Methods : In this cross-sectional study, one eye each of 32 nonglaucomatous PXS cases and 29 healthy volunteers were enrolled. The optic discs were scanned using enhanced depth imaging spectral-domain optical coherence tomography, and measurements were obtained using HEYEX software 6.0. LC and other related variables at three areas (mid-superior, center, and mid-inferior) and peripapillary choroidal thickness were determined. Linear mixed modeling was used to adjust the variables. Results : After adjustment for age, sex, and axial length, there was no significant difference between the ...
