    Peripapillary and Macular Vessel Density in Dysthyroid Optic Neuropathy: An Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography Study

    Purpose : To evaluate peripapillary and macular vessel density in eyes with dysthyroid optic neuropathy (DON) and its correlation with visual function. Methods : Patients diagnosed as thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy (TAO) with or without DON and healthy participants were recruited. All subjects underwent a complete ophthalmic examination and optical coherence tomography angiography centered on the fovea and the optic nerve head. Microvascular measurements were summarized as vessel density in the whole image and in each subfield. Visual function, including best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA), visual field (VF), and visual evoked potential (VEP), were assessed for all TAO patients. Areas under the receiver operating characteristic ...
