OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study is to elucidate a topographic correlation between optic disc hemorrhages and retinal nerve fiber layer defects as well as peripapillary atrophy in normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). DESIGN The authors prospectively studied the relation between the precise locations of disc hemorrhages and retinal nerve fiber layer defects in the first part of the study. The authors also compared morphometrically the peripapillary atrophy and the optic disc in eyes with disc… CONTINUE READING
