PURPOSE To investigate characteristics of lamina cribrosa (LC) defects in myopic eyes with open-angle glaucoma (OAG) using spectral-domain (SD) optical coherence tomography (OCT). DESIGN Cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS One hundred thirty-three eyes with OAG and 83 eyes without OAG, with axial length of 24 mm or more. METHODS Serial enhanced depth imaging SD OCT B-scans of the optic disc were acquired and reviewed for LC defects (diameter, ≥100 μm) and large pores (diameter, 60-100 μm… CONTINUE READING
