    Effect of Trabeculectomy on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Measurements of the Optic Nerve Head Neuroretinal Rim Tissue

    Purpose Ophthalmologists commonly perform glaucoma surgery to treat progressive glaucoma. Few studies have examined the stability of OCT neuroretinal rim parameters after glaucoma surgery for ongoing detection of glaucoma progression. Design Longitudinal cohort study. Participants 20 eyes (16 subjects) with primary open angle glaucoma who had undergone a trabeculectomy. Methods We calculated the change in OCT parameters (minimum rim area (MRA), minimum rim width (MRW), Bruch’s membrane opening (BMO) area, mean cup depth (MCD), anterior lamina cribrosa surface depth (ALCSD), prelaminar tissue thickness (PLTT), retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RFNLT) during an interval from the visit before the surgery ...
