PURPOSE. Retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) can be unreliable in the presence of a myopic tilted disc. The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of the calculation circle location of spectral domain (SD)-OCT when measuring RNFL thickness in healthy subjects with myopic tilted disc.(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the differences in the histopathology and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) expression in the Tenon's tissue of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) patients, primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG) patients, and non-glaucomatous patients. METHODS POAG and PACG patients, who underwent a trabeculectomy and had no history of ocular disease(More)
PURPOSE To document the clinical features of disc hemorrhage in patients with branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and normal tension glaucoma (NTG), and to evaluate the relationship between BRVO and NTG with disc hemorrhages. METHODS From July 2001 to May 2006, sixteen patients with both NTG and BRVO in different eyes were successively collected from(More)
Purpose. To evaluate the short-term effect of standard automated perimetry (SAP) testing on intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with open-angle glaucoma (OAG). Methods. We tested 45 patients (71 eyes) with OAG that had stable IOP under medical treatment. IOP was measured four times using an iCare rebound tonometer (RBT) immediately before, immediately(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the point-wise relationships between visual field sensitivity (VFS), as measured by standard automated perimetry (SAP), and macular thickness, as determined by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), in patients with glaucoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and six glaucoma subjects (one eye per subject) recruited(More)
