PURPOSE The effectiveness of scanning laser polarimetry (by the nerve fibre analyser, NFA) and of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in estimating nerve fibre layer thickness (NFLT) and the correlations between NFLT and cup-to-disc (C/D) ratio or values of mean deviation (MD) from static visual field tests were compared using patients with glaucoma… CONTINUE READING
