PURPOSE To compare the ability of optical coherence tomography retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), optic nerve head, and macular thickness parameters to differentiate between healthy eyes and eyes with glaucomatous visual field loss. DESIGN Observational case-control study. METHODS Eighty-eight patients with glaucoma and 78 healthy subjects were included.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the abilities of current commercially available versions of 3 optical imaging techniques: scanning laser polarimetry with variable corneal compensation (GDx VCC), confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (HRT II [Heidelberg Retina Tomograph]), and optical coherence tomography (Stratus OCT) to discriminate between healthy eyes and eyes(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate RTVue spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) (Optovue Inc, Fremont, California, USA) reproducibility and to assess agreement with Stratus time-domain OCT (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, California, USA) measurements. DESIGN Observational clinical study. METHODS Scans were obtained from both eyes of all participants 3 times(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether retardation (change in polarization) measurements of healthy subjects and glaucoma patients obtained by using a confocal scanning laser polarimeter correspond to known properties of the nerve fiber layer. METHODS A polarimeter, an optical device used to measure the change in linear polarization of light (retardation), was(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine which retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measures obtained with scanning laser polarimetry are most useful in detecting early to moderate glaucomatous visual field loss. SUBJECTS AND METHODS One eye from 84 healthy individuals and 83 patients with early to moderate glaucomatous visual field loss (167 eyes) was assessed with a scanning(More)
Out of a total of 2272 diurnal curves (DC) of intraocular pressure (IOP) obtained from 1178 patients 690 first curves of the right eye of all patients were analysed. For each DC there were 4-6 IOP readings taken between 8 am and 6.30 pm of the same day. The patients' diagnosis, age, sex, type of IOP lowering medication, diabetes, and the calendar month of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the reproducibility of optical coherence tomograph (OCT) retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measurements in normal and glaucomatous eyes by means of the commercially available OCT 2000 instrument (Humphrey Systems, Dublin, CA). DESIGN Prospective instrument validation study. PARTICIPANTS One eye each from 10 normal subjects and 10(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the ability of 3 instruments, the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (HRT), the GDx Nerve Fiber Analyzer (GDx), and the Optical Coherence Tomograph (OCT), to discriminate between healthy eyes and eyes with early to moderate glaucomatous visual field loss. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Forty-one patients with early to moderate glaucomatous visual(More)
OBJECTIVE To quantitatively assess and compare the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in ocular hypertensive eyes with normal and glaucomatous eyes using the Optical Coherence Tomograph (OCT 2000, software version A4X1; Humphrey Instruments, San Leandro, Calif). METHODS The mean RNFL thickness of ocular hypertensive (n = 28) eyes was(More)
PURPOSE To present and evaluate a new method of estimating rates of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) loss in glaucoma by combining structural and functional measurements. DESIGN Observational cohort study. METHODS The study included 213 eyes of 213 glaucoma patients followed up for an average of 4.5 ± 0.8 years with standard automated perimetry visual fields(More)
