BACKGROUND To compare the macular and peripapillary choroidal thickness between normal and glaucoma eyes and find out factors related to choroidal thickness using enhanced depth imaging (EDI) of Heidelberg Spectralis SD-OCT. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional transverse study. METHODS A total of 108 glaucoma patients and 48 healthy controls were included in the analysis. Choroidal thickness was measured from 6 mm length radial B-scans at the macular and the optic nerve head by EDI OCT. Choroidal… CONTINUE READING
