    Short-term variations of optic coherence tomography findings in mild and severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

    Objective To evaluate the short-term changes in subfoveal choroidal thickness (SFCT), ganglion cell complex (GCC) analysis, and retinal nerve fiber length (RNFL) of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in a 3-month follow-up. Materials and methods Forty-eight patients with COPD (96 eyes) and 40 control subjects (80 eyes) were enrolled in our study. COPD patients were grouped according to disease severity as Group 1 (mild–moderate) and Group 2 (advanced). GCC, RNFL, and SFCT analysis by Cirrus SD-OCT were obtained for all eyes, in two consecutive examinations with a 3-month interval. Results SFCT in Group 2 was lower than ...
