    A Comparison of OCT Parameters in Identifying Glaucoma Damage in Eyes Suspected of Having Glaucoma

    Purpose To compare retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) and Bruch’s membrane opening (BMO) minimum rim width (MRW) measured by spectral-domain (SD) OCT for diagnosing glaucoma in those suspected of having the disease. Design Observational cohort study. Participants One hundred thirteen eyes from 81 patients suspected of having glaucoma based on optic nerve appearance. Methods Participants were imaged using SD OCT, and RNFLT and BMO MRW were measured. All participants showed normal visual fields at the time of imaging but were considered suspects based on the appearance of the optic disc during clinical examination. Eyes were classified as glaucomatous ...
