    Peripapillary Retinal Nerve Fiber Measurement with Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Age-Related Macular Degeneration

    Purpose: To evaluate the relationship between the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measurements with Spectral-domain Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Methods: Patients >60 years of age without glaucoma or record of intraocular pressure >21 mmHg and no systemic or intraocular diseases or treatment or surgical intervention that affected the RNFL underwent OCT measurement of the RNFL. The severity of AMD was staged with the Clinical Age-Related Maculopathy Staging System. The relationship between RNFL measurements and AMD stages of one eye per patient was analyzed. Results: Eighty-six eyes (46 patients) with AMD and no glaucoma or ...
