    Prediction of Glaucoma Progression with Structural Parameters: Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography and Clinical Disc Parameters

    Purpose To test the hypothesis that baseline optical coherence tomography (OCT) measures predict visual field (VF) progression in a cohort of patients with suspected or established glaucoma and compare their performance to semiquantitative optic disc measures. Design Observational cohort study. Methods Setting: Academic institution. Study Population One-hundred seventy-one eyes of 95 patients with good-quality baseline retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular OCT images and disc photographs with >2 years of follow-up and ≥5 VFs. Observation Procedures Baseline macular and RNFL OCT measures and cup-to-disc ratio and disc damage likelihood score. Main Outcome Measures Prediction of glaucomatous visual field deterioration ...
