AIMS To determine if normal tension glaucoma (NTG) patients differ from age matched controls in blood flow to the peripapillary retina, as measured with confocal scanning laser Doppler flowmetry (cSLDF; "Heidelberg retinal flowmetry"). METHODS 12 NTG patients and 12 age matched controls were compared using (a) 10 x 10 pixel boxes (the instrument default(More)
AIM To determine the ocular haemodynamic response to gas perturbations in glaucoma. METHODS Intraocular pressure (IOP), systemic systolic and diastolic blood pressure (SBP and DBP), and retrobulbar blood flow velocities, measured by colour Doppler imaging (CDI), were recorded at two visits. CDI was used to measure peak systolic and end diastolic(More)
New technologies have facilitated the study of the ocular circulation. These modalities and analysis techniques facilitate very precise and comprehensive study of retinal, choroidal, and retrobulbar circulations. These techniques include: 1. Vessel caliber assessment; 2. Scanning laser ophthalmoscopic fluorescein angiography and indocyanine green(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effects of age on global and sectoral peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), macular thicknesses, and optic nerve head (ONH) parameters in healthy subjects using optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN Retrospective, cross-sectional observational study. PARTICIPANTS A total of 226 eyes from 124 healthy subjects were(More)
AIM Choroidal perfusion, affected in age related macular degeneration (AMD), is difficult to objectively assess given the overlying retinal circulation. This study more objectively compared choroidal perfusion parameters in a group with non-neovascular AMD to an unaffected age matched control group. METHODS 21 non-neovascular AMD subjects and 21 age(More)
Attempts to noninvasively quantify the oxygen saturation of blood within the retinal vasculature date back to the 1950s. This article discusses the various approaches that have been taken to estimate the oxygen saturation in the retinal vasculature. Advantages and limitations of each are discussed. Data from human and animal subjects are also presented.
BACKGROUND/AIMS To investigate retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness measurement reproducibility using conventional time-domain optical coherence tomography (TD-OCT) and spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT), and to evaluate two methods defining the optic nerve head (ONH) centring: Centred Each Time (CET) vs Centred Once (CO), in terms of RNFL thickness(More)
PURPOSE Measurements of human Schlemm's canal (SC) have been limited to histologic sections. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate noninvasive measurements of aqueous outflow (AO) structures in the human eye, examining regional variation in cross-sectional SC areas (on/off collector channel [CC] ostia [SC/CC] and nasal/temporal) in the eyes of living(More)
PURPOSE To describe two cases of peripapillary retinal schisis in patients with glaucoma without evidence of optic nerve pits, pseudopits, or X-linked retinoschisis. DESIGN Two observational case reports and literature review. METHODS Imaging of the peripapillary nerve fiber layer and schisis cavities was completed in two patients, and one patient was(More)
PURPOSE We sought to visualize the aqueous outflow system in 3 dimensions (3D) in living human eyes, and to investigate the use of commercially available spectral-domain optical coherence tomographic (SD-OCT) systems for this purpose. DESIGN Prospective, observational study. PARTICIPANTS One randomly determined eye in each of 6 normal healthy subjects(More)
