Purpose of review With the rapid adoption of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) in clinical practice and the recent advances in software technology, there is a need for a review of the literature on glaucoma detection and progression analysis algorithms designed for the commercially available instruments. Recent findings Peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness and macular thickness, including segmental macular thickness calculation algorithms, have been… 
Identification of the Most Accurate Spectral-domain Optical Coherence Tomography Parameters in Eyes With Early High-Tension and Low-Tension Glaucoma
TLDR
In eyes with early glaucoma, the pRNFL thickness scan seems to be a more accurate SDOCT protocol to identify those with LTG compared with the GCC thickness scan.
Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography for Glaucoma Diagnosis
TLDR
A critically review of the existing literature evaluating the diagnostic accuracy of spectral-domain OCT in glaucoma and issues related to how SD-OCT results should be incorporated into clinical practice are discussed.
OCT in Glaucoma Diagnosis, Detection and Screening
TLDR
Clinical assessment using multiple parameters, including peripapillary RNFL, ganglion cells, optic nerve head, and macular parameters, has proven useful for managing and diagnosing glaucoma as well as for evaluating risk in glAUcoma suspects.
Can Glaucomatous Visual Field Progression be Predicted by Structural and Functional Measures?
TLDR
Both measurement of RNFLT by OCT and Glaucoma probability score by CSLO are highly predictive of future visual field conversion and provide independent predictive information beyond optic disc assessment, central corneal thickness, and SAP pattern SD.
Chapter 10 OCT in Glaucoma Diagnosis , Detection and Screening
TLDR
Clinical assessment using multiple parameters, including peripapillary RNFL, ganglion cells, optic nerve head, and macular parameters, has proven useful for managing and diagnosing glaucoma as well as for evaluating risk in glAUcoma suspects.
Evaluation of a Qualitative Approach for Detecting Glaucomatous Progression Using Wide-Field Optical Coherence Tomography Scans
TLDR
Qualitative evaluation of OCT imaging information more frequently detected change consistent with known patterns of glaucomatous progression than global cpRNFL thickness, warranting further studies to evaluate its value.
Improving glaucoma detection using spatially correspondent clusters of damage and by combining standard automated perimetry and optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
Overall, the primary sources of value-added for glaucoma detection stem from the continuous cluster search (the pcc), the mRGCPL data, and the combination of structure and function.
Diagnostic ability of inner macular layers to discriminate early glaucomatous eyes using vertical and horizontal B-scan posterior pole protocols
TLDR
Inner macular layers using either horizontal or vertical B-scans, especially temporal sectors of mGCL, have good diagnostic capability to differentiate early glaucomatous eyes from control eyes; however, pRNFL has the highest diagnostic sensitivity for glAUcoma detection.

Detection of glaucoma progression by assessment of segmented macular thickness data obtained using spectral domain optical coherence tomography.
TLDR
Although baseline cRNFL measurement was optimal in terms of glaucoma diagnosis, the GCAT and TMT showed similar levels of sensitivity in progression detection, and GCA afforded the best diagnostic performance among three macular layers.
Evaluation of Macular Thickness and Peripapillary Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness for Detection of Early Glaucoma Using Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
For the diagnosis of early glaucoma by SD-OCT, macular parameters had high discriminating power and high reproducibility comparable with peripapillary RNFL parameters.
Detection of Glaucoma by Spectral Domain-scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy/Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-SLO/OCT) and Time Domain Optical Coherence Tomography
TLDR
Although there were small differences in the 2 instruments in measured RNFL thickness of glaucomatous eyes, in general there was good agreement between the 2 OCTs.
Spectral-domain Optical Coherence Tomography Measurement of Macular Volume for Diagnosing Glaucoma
TLDR
Selective measurement of the GCC layer by SD-OCT improves diagnostic performance of the macular structural analysis for glaucoma diagnosis, as measured by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography.
Glaucoma discrimination of segmented cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) macular scans
TLDR
SD-OCT GCIP and GCC measurements showed similar glaucoma diagnostic ability and were comparable with that of cpR NFL, which was similar to the discriminating ability of the mean cpRNFL.
