PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of pupillary dilation on retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFL) measurements using optical coherence tomography (OCT-3). METHODS Randomly chosen eyes of healthy individuals were scanned before and after pupillary dilation by two trained operators (R.G.O., R.V.) using OCT-3 (Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., Dublin, CA). Fast and(More)
PURPOSE To determine the optimal OCT-3 scanning protocol. METHODS Normal subjects, ocular hypertensive, and open-angle glaucoma patients were enrolled. The "fast" RNFL scan protocol consists of 3 consecutive circular scans, each containing 256 A-scans obtained in a single 1.92 second session. The "regular" RNFL scan protocol contains 3 separate circular(More)
