    Optic Nerve Parameters in Obese Children as Measured by Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose : To investigate whether an association exists between obesity and optic nerve parameters. Methods : This was a prospective comparative study including 125 eyes of 63 obese and 122 eyes of 62 healthy pediatric subjects. Optic nerve measurements were performed using the Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomograph (SD-OCT). Results : The disc area, cup volume, mean and vertical C/D ratio, inferior and temporal RNFL thickness values were significantly higher in the control group than the obese group; however, age, sex, mean, superior and nasal RNFL thickness and rim area measurements were not statistically significantly different between the two groups. Age ...
