PURPOSE To evaluate the role and ability of optical coherence tomography (OCT) to detect differences in peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness between normal and glaucomatous eyes and also between different severities of glaucoma. METHOD This cross-sectional observational study included 160 eyes of 160 healthy subjects and 134 eyes of 134 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Peripapillary RNFL thickness was measured on OCT using the fast RNFL thickness protocol… CONTINUE READING
