Purpose Recent studies indicate that the amount of deformation of the peripapillary retinal pigment epithelium and Bruch's membrane (pRPE/BM) toward or away from the vitreous may reflect acute changes in cerebrospinal fluid pressure. The study purpose is to determine if changes in optic-nerve-head (ONH) shape reflect a treatment effect (acetazolamide/placebo + weight management) using the optical coherence tomography (OCT) substudy of the Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension Treatment Trial… CONTINUE READING
