    Reduced Retinal Vessel Density in Primary Angle Closure Glaucoma: A Quantitative Study Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    Purpose: To investigate the changes in the retinal vasculature in different parts of the fundus in eyes with primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG). Methods: Healthy subjects and those with PACG were enrolled. Optical coherence tomography and a split-spectrum amplitude decorrelation angiography algorithm were used to quantify the retinal vessel densities in the parafoveal and peripapillary areas. Results: Thirty-nine eyes from 24 PACG patients and 39 eyes from 20 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects were included. The retinal vessel densities in the parafoveal and peripapillary areas and every sector of the two areas were significantly lower in the PACG eyes than ...
