    Impact of Posterior Sclera on Glaucoma Progression in Treated Myopic Normal-Tension Glaucoma Using Reconstructed Optical Coherence Tomographic Images

    Purpose : To investigate factors associated with visual field (VF) progression in treated myopic normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) using a novel posterior sclera reconstruction method involving swept-source optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods : Fifty-six myopic patients on ocular hypotensive therapy with the diagnose NTG had five or more VF tests during a period of 72.63 ± 20.46 months in clinical follow-up. Glaucomatous VF progression was decided by the standards of Early Manifest Glaucoma Trial criteria. Coronally reconstructed OCT images were used to obtain the position of the deepest point of the eye (DPE), and parameterized the distance (Disc-DPE distance), depth (Disc–DPE ...
