PURPOSE To evaluate effects of prematurity on early optic nerve (ON) development and the usefulness of ON parameters as indicators of central nervous system (CNS) development and pathology. DESIGN Prospective, cross-sectional, longitudinal study. PARTICIPANTS Forty-four preterm infants undergoing retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) screening and 52 term infants. METHODS We analyzed ON from portable handheld spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images (Bioptigen, Inc… CONTINUE READING
