PURPOSE To investigate waveform changes in blood flow (BF) in the optic nerve head (ONH) and to evaluate their usefulness in identifying normal tension glaucoma (NTG). METHODS Sixty-one eyes of 61 patients with NTG and 21 eyes of age-matched healthy control subjects were included in this study. The NTG eyes were divided into the following three groups based on the progression of their visual field defects: mild (mean deviation [MD] greater than -6.0 decibels [dB]), moderate (MD between -6.0… CONTINUE READING
