PURPOSE To evaluate the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCL+) thickness, and macular choroidal thickness (mCT) in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS A total of 79 COPD patients and 71 age- and sex-matched healthy individuals were enrolled in this prospective cross-sectional study. The patients were divided into two subgroups (with mild-to-moderate COPD… CONTINUE READING
