    Optic nerve and macular optical coherence tomography can be helpful in distinguishing between glaucoma and glaucoma masqueraders, according to researchers. Researchers reported a case series of 4 patients and their spectral-domain OCT findings with retinal disease or nonglaucomatous optic neuropathy, who presented with suspected or previously diagnosed normal-tension glaucoma. The first patient was found to have marked diffuse retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular thinning on OCT due to cancer-associated retinopathy, researchers wrote. The 76-year-old woman was referred after cataract surgery failed to relieve her symptoms of progressive vision loss. The second patient showed deep focal inferotemporal RNFL loss ...
