The main objective of this report is to encourage consistent quality of testing and reporting within and between centres that use colour Doppler imaging (CDI) for assessment of retrobulbar blood flow. The intention of this review is to standardize methods in CDI assessment that are used widely, but not to exclude other approaches or additional tests that(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness and retinal sensitivity in the normal visual hemifield of glaucomatous eyes with localized visual field loss with those of normal eyes and eyes with suspected glaucoma, and to evaluate the relationship between RNFL atrophy and glaucoma severity. METHODS One randomly selected eye of each(More)
PURPOSE To examine the relationship between retinal ganglion cell function measured using pattern electroretinogram optimized for glaucoma screening (PERGLA), retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, and optic nerve head topography. METHODS Twenty-nine normal, 28 glaucoma, and 37 glaucoma suspect volunteers were enrolled. All participants were age(More)
PURPOSE To compare retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness assessments and the discriminating ability of Fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT) with that of time-domain optical coherence tomography (TD-OCT) for glaucoma detection. DESIGN Prospective, nonrandomized, observational cohort study. METHODS Normal and glaucomatous eyes(More)
PURPOSE To investigate diurnal change and pattern of variation in intraocular pressure (IOP) and systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DSP) blood pressures in a group with untreated primary open-angle glaucoma (uPOAG) and compare it with an age-matched, normal group. METHODS IOP, SBP, and DBP were measured in 14 patients with uPOAG and in 14 normal subjects,(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether correction for atypical birefringence pattern (ABP) using scanning laser polarimetry with enhanced corneal compensation (SLP-ECC) reduces the severity of ABP compared with variable corneal compensation (SLP-VCC) and improves the correlation with visual function. DESIGN Prospective observational study. METHODS Normal and(More)
PURPOSE To examine the hypotheses that in glaucomatous eyes with single-hemifield damage, retinal blood flow (RBF) is significantly reduced in the retinal hemisphere corresponding with the abnormal visual hemifield and that there are significant associations among reduced retinal sensitivity (RS) in the abnormal hemifield, RBF, and structural measurements(More)
AIM To measure the reproducibility of retinal oxygen saturation (SaO2) levels among treated glaucomatous eyes and normal controls in a prospective non-randomised study. METHODS Patients with perimetric glaucoma (PG) and normal controls were included. Exclusion criteria for both groups included visual acuity <20/30, unreliable visual fields,(More)
PurposeThe objective of this study is to assess whether baseline optic nerve head (ONH) topography and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) are predictive of glaucomatous visual-field progression in glaucoma suspect (GS) and glaucomatous eyes, and to calculate the level of risk associated with each of these parameters.MethodsParticipants with ≥28(More)
Our aim was to compare surgical outcomes of trabeculectomy and nonvalved glaucoma-drainage-device (GDD) implantation in eyes with chronic inflammatory glaucoma and uncontrolled intraocular pressure (IOP). A retrospective chart review was conducted on patients with glaucomatous optic neuropathy, chronic anterior or posterior segment inflammation, and ≥6(More)
