AIMS To evaluate a new method for measuring haemoglobin (Hb) levels and quantifying the colour changes in the optic nerve head of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients to detect axonal loss and consequently optic disc atrophy. MATERIAL AND METHODS 40 MS patients and 40 age and sex-matched healthy subjects were included in this prospective cross-sectional study(More)
PURPOSE In the present study, we evaluated changes in the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and optic disk color (i.e., the level of paleness as an indirect sign of axonal loss) in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) compared with healthy controls. The usefulness of this method as a new biomarker for AD was also evaluated. METHODS Fifty-six patients(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated and compared the ability of a new method for measuring hemoglobin (Hb) levels at the optic nerve head (ONH) to that of visual field evaluation, scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (HRT), scanning laser polarimetry (GDx), and optical coherence tomography (OCT) for diagnosing glaucoma. METHODS Healthy eyes (n = 102) and glaucomatous eyes (n =(More)
Objective. To evaluate a new method of measuring hemoglobin (Hb) levels and quantifying the color changes in the optic nerve head of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. We also compared differences in retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thicknesses obtained using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) device between PD group and healthy group.(More)
Neuro-ophthalmologists typically observe a temporal pallor of the optic disc in patients with multiple sclerosis. Here, we describe the emergence of an idea to quantify these optic disc color changes in multiple sclerosis patients. We recruited 12 multiple sclerosis patients with previous optic neuritis attack and obtained photographs of their optic discs.(More)
