    The effect of panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) versus intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) plus prp on peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness analyzed by optical coherence tomography in patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy

    Purpose: The current study aimed to evaluate changes in peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in diabetic patients with bilateral proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) after receiving panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) or intravitreal bevacizumab (IVB) with PRP. Methods: Ocular examination and peripapillary optical coherent tomography (OCT) were performed for each patient at baseline, 1, 3, 6, and 10 months after treatment. Both eyes of each patient were randomized into either PRP or PRP + IVB group. Results: Sixty-four eyes (32 patients) were enrolled in this randomized clinical trial. In the PRP group, global RNFL thickness initially increased and reached statistical significance in ...
