PURPOSE To examine the influence of different signal strengths on measurements made with optical coherence tomography (OCT) of macular, optic nerve head, and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) parameters. METHODS From 2003 to 2005, 2092 children, mostly aged 12 years, were examined, and macular, optic nerve head, and RNFL parameters were measured by OCT. Multiple fast scans were acquired, and only right eyes were included in the analyses. Signal strength category was determined after averaging… CONTINUE READING
