PURPOSE To evaluate and compare the diagnostic accuracies for glaucoma detection of scanning laser polarimetry (SLP) with enhanced corneal compensation (GDx ECC) and variable corneal compensation (GDx VCC; both by Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, CA), according to different levels of disease severity and presence of atypical retardation patterns. METHODS The study included 102 eyes of 68 patients with glaucoma and 94 eyes of 55 normal subjects. All patients underwent SLP imaging with ECC and VCC… CONTINUE READING
