    Evaluation and Correlation of Morphological, Blood Flow and Physiological Retinal Changes in a Rat Model of Glaucoma with a Combined Optical Coherence Tomography and Electroretinography System (Thesis)

    Glaucoma is a chronic disease associated with progressive dysfunction of the retinal ganglion cells (RGC), reduction of the retinal blood flow, thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and deformation of the optical nerve head (ONH).
