Abstract
PURPOSE. We explored and compared the relationships between the visual field (VF) sensitivities assessed by standard automated perimetry (SAP), and the ganglion cell–inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (pRNFL) thicknesses as measured by Cirrus high-definition optical coherence tomography (HD-OCT) in glaucomatous eyes. METHODS. We enrolled 213 eyes of 213 patients with glaucoma. The thicknesses of the average/sectoral GCIPL and pRNFL were measured by Cirrus HD-OCT. The mean sensitivity (MS) of 24-2 SAP was recorded on decibel and 1/L scales. The topographic relationships between structure and function were investigated. RESULTS. Statistically significant correlations between the corresponding VF sensitivity and the macular GCIPL thickness were found in all GCIPL sectors. Among six GCIPL sectors, the strongest association was observed between superonasal center MS and inferotemporal GCIPL thickness. In comparative analysis, the association between the central cluster MS and average GCIPL thickness was significantly stronger than that of temporal pRNFL thickness using the decibel scale (P < 0.001). The association between regional VF sensitivities, and the inferior hemifield and inferior GCIPL thicknesses were significantly stronger than those of the corresponding pRNFL thickness using the decibel scale (P ¼ 0.001 and 0.007). CONCLUSIONS. The average and sectoral GCIPL thicknesses determined by Cirrus HD-OCT were associated significantly with global and regional VF sensitivity in patients with glaucoma. The macular GCIPL thickness values may provide more valuable information than temporal pRNFL thickness values for understanding the structure–function relationships of the macular region.

There is a growing body of evidence that early glaucomatous damage involves the macula. The anatomical basis of this damage can be studied using frequency domain optical coherence tomography (fdOCT), by which the local thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and local retinal ganglion cell plus inner plexiform (RGC+) layer can be measured. Based upon averaged fdOCT results from healthy controls and patients, we show that: 1. For healthy controls, the average RGC+ layer thickness closel...

PURPOSE: We compared the diagnostic ability of Stratus and Cirrus optical coherence tomography (OCT) in optic nerve head (ONH) analysis, and examined the effects of optic disc size and peripapillary atrophy (PPA) on their diagnostic capacity. METHODS: Stratus and Cirrus OCT was performed in 28 control and 78 glaucomatous eyes. ONH parameters and diagnostic capacity calculated from the area under the receiver operating characteristics curve (AUC) were compared between the two modalities. Glaucoma...

RESULTS. The average RNFL thickness, RA, and mean deviation (MD) were 85.6 6 5.7 l, 1.0 6 0.3 mm 2 , and � 1.3 6 1.9 dB, respectively. Global RA demonstrated a stronger correlation with MD compared to average RNFL thickness (P ¼ 0.002). The highest correlations were observed between superonasal VF cluster (in dB scale) and inferotemporal RA (R 2 ¼ 0.26, 95% CI: 0.15–0.40) or inferotemporal RNFL thickness (R 2 ¼ 0.24, 95% CI: 0.13–0.37).

In this study, we investigated the correlation between pattern electroretinogram (PERG) and optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) parameters for diagnosis in patients with normal-tension glaucoma (NTG). Forty-nine normal individuals (49 eyes) and 60 patients with NTG (60 eyes) were enrolled. OCTA and PERG parameters, such as macular vessel density (VD) and the amplitude of N35-P50 and P50-N95, were measured. Correlation analyses were performed between the parameters, and the area under...

Purpose The Logarithm of the Minimum Angle of Resolution (logMAR) chart is the most common clinical test for assessing central visual function in glaucoma. However, based on the use of these charts, visual acuity (VA) often remains normal even when severe macular damage exists. Here, we aim to investigate the potential advantages of high-pass VA in detecting glaucoma compared with conventional VA. Methods Monocular best-corrected VA measurements were compared for a novel high-pass electronic VA ...
