PURPOSE To create a multivariable predictive model for glaucoma in an exclusively African American population and to compare the performance of the model with individual structural parameters derived from SD-OCT. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 103 healthy eyes and 118 glaucomatous eyes of African American patients underwent SD-OCT optic disc and macular scanning. Twenty-seven optic nerve head, retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), and ganglion cell parameters were collected. A multivariable… CONTINUE READING
