      Prcis: Small but significant decreases in OCTA-measured circumpapillary capillary density were observed in healthy eyes dilated with 2.5% phenylephrine/0.5% tropicamide. Though likely clinically insignificant, ophthalmologists should consider these changes when interpreting OCTA results from dilated eyes.

    8. Glaucomatous vertical vessel density asymmetry of the temporal raphe detected with optical coherence tomography angiography

      Glaucomatous vertical vessel density asymmetry of the temporal raphe detected with optical coherence tomography angiography
      Changes in retinal vasculature and ocular circulation may play an important role in the glaucoma development and progression. We evaluated the vertical asymmetry across the temporal raphe of the deep retinal layer vessel density, using swept-source optical coherence tomography angiography (SS-OCTA), and its relationship with the central visual field (VF) loss. Thirty-four eyes of 27 patients with open-angle glaucoma were included. SS-OCTA macular scanning was performed within a 3 3mm ...

    12. Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography and Glaucoma: A Brief Review

      Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography and Glaucoma: A Brief Review
      Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a new modality in ocular imaging which provides non-invasive assessment and measurement of the vascular structures in the retina and optic nerve head. This technique provides useful information in glaucoma, such as quantitative assessment of vessel density. Vessel density measurement can be affected by various subject-related, eye-related, and diseaserelated factors. Overall, OCTA has good repeatability and reproducibility, and can differentiate glaucoma eyes from normal ...

    15. En face optical coherence tomography imaging of beta and gamma parapapillary atrophy in high myopia

      En face optical coherence tomography imaging of beta and gamma parapapillary atrophy in high myopia
      Objective Recent studies have suggested that optical coherence tomography (OCT)-based classification of parapapillary atrophy (PPA) may be helpful in distinguishing glaucomatous from myopic optic disc changes. However, the pathological implications of PPA may be different in highly myopic eyes that exhibit optic disc deformations distinct from low to moderate myopia. Therefore, we conducted the current study to investigate factors associated with OCT-defined PPA zones measured in en face reconstructed ...
