    Differences in optical coherence tomography assessment of radial peripapillary capillaries with axial length and optic nerve head morphology (Thesis)

    INTRODUCTION: Optic nerve head morphological parameters and axial length have been shown to be associated with altered retinal perfusion and microvascular characteristics. The radial peripapillary capillaries (RPC) are a fine network of vessels embedded within the retinal nerve fiber layer which can be visualized using optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography. RPC is susceptible to ocular hypertension, ischemia, trauma, or biomechanical stress. Since axially myopic eyes have greater propensity for developing glaucoma, assessing the relationship between morphological parameters and RPC characteristics may contribute to evidence important to understanding the pathophysiology of glaucoma and other optic neuropathies. PURPOSE: To investigate the association ...
