    Diagnostic ability of ganglion cell complex thickness to detect glaucoma in high myopia eyes by Fourier domain optical coherence tomography

    AIM : To evaluate the ability of macular ganglion cell complex (GCC) thickness using Fourier domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) to detect glaucoma in highly myopic eyes. METHODS : Cross-sectional study. A total of 114 participants, consecutively were enrolled. Macular GCC thickness and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness were obtained with RTVue FD-OCT. Receiver operating characteristics curves were constructed for each measurement parameter, and areas under the curves (AUCs) were compared. RESULTS : Both the average GCC and average RNFL thickness showed negative correlations with axial length (rGCC=-0.404, P=0.001; rRNFL=-0.561, P<0.001). The largest ...
