    Immediate effects of smoking on optic nerve and macular perfusion measured by optical coherence tomography angiography

    The aim of this study was the assessment of the relationship between cigarette smoking and optic nerve and macular vessel density measured by optical coherence tomography angiography. We examined 30 eyes from 30 healthy habitual smokers. The examination was performed using a high-speed and high-resolution spectral-domain optical coherence tomography RTVue XR Avanti with AngioVue (Optovue, Fremont, CA, USA) with a split-spectrum amplitude-decorrelation angiography algorithm. Blood pressure, heart rate, vascular density in the area of the optic nerve head (4.5*4.5 mm) and vascular density with the foveal avascular zone in the central macula (3.0*3.0 mm ...
