    Peripapillary and Macular Microcirculation in Glaucoma Patients of African and European Descent Using Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    Précis: We found no significant differences in peripapillary and macula microcirculation blood flow metrics in eyes with open angle glaucoma of African descent (AD) and European Descent (ED) as detected by optical coherence tomography-angiography ( OCTA ). Purpose: To investigate the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macular vascular microcirculation in subjects of African descent (AD) and European descent (ED) with open-angle glaucoma using optical coherence tomography-angiography ( OCTA ). Patients and Methods: One eye from each subject was scanned using AngioPlex OCTA system (Zeiss Meditec Inc., Dublin, CA) covering both a 6 ×6▒mm scanning area centered at the optic nerve ...
