    Circumpapillary and macular vessel density assessment by optical coherence tomography angiography in eyes with temporal hemianopia from chiasmal compression. Correlation with retinal neural and visual field loss

    Aims To compare the circumpapillary and macular vessel density (cpVD/mVD) of eyes with temporal visual field (VF) defect and band atrophy (BA) of the optic nerve and normal controls using OCTA and to verify the association of VD parameters with circumpapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (cpRNFL) thickness, macular ganglion cell complex (mGCC) thickness and VF loss. Methods Thirty-three eyes of 26 patients with BA and 42 eyes of 22 age-matched normal controls underwent OCT + OCTA scanning. cpVD and cpRNFL were expressed as average and sector measurements. mVD and mGCC were calculated as averages and in quadrants and hemiretinas. VF ...
