    The Effect of Anti-Tubercular Drugs on Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Using Optical Coherence Tomography

    Purpose : To study the effect of anti-tubercular drugs on retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness using optical coherence tomography. Methods : The study was done in thirty patients newly diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis which were given anti-tubercular treatment (isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol and pyrazinamide ) at DOTS centre of K. N. TB and Chest hospital (Dr. S.N M C.) Jodhpur.
