Abstract
Background/Aims. To investigate the patterns of retinal ganglion cell damage at different stages of glaucoma, using the circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and macula ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) thicknesses. Methods. In 296 eyes of 296 glaucoma patients and 55 eyes of 55 healthy controls, the correlations of mean deviation (MD) with the superior and inferior quadrant RNFL/GCIPL thickness (defined as the average of three superior and inferior sectors, resp.) were analyzed. Results. In early to moderate glaucoma, most of the RNFL/GCIPL thicknesses had significant positive correlations with the MD. In advanced glaucoma, the superior GCIPL thickness showed the highest correlation with MD (), followed by the superior RNFL () (all; ). The correlation coefficient of the inferior RNFL thickness with MD () was significantly stronger in early to moderate glaucoma compared to that in advanced glaucoma (; ). In contrast, the correlations of the superior GCIPL thickness with MD () in advanced glaucoma was significantly stronger compared to that in early to moderate glaucoma (; ). Conclusions. The most preserved region in advanced glaucoma appears to be the superior macular GCIPL, whereas the most vulnerable region for initial glaucoma is the inferior RNFL around the optic disc.

Glaucoma, which affects more than 70 million people worldwide, is a heterogeneous group of disorders with a resultant common denominator; optic neuropathy, eventually leading to irreversible blindness. The clinical manifestations of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), the most common subtype of glaucoma, include excavation of the optic disc and progressive loss of visual field. Axonal degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and apoptotic death of their cell bodies are observed in glaucoma,...

Although glaucoma is classified as an optic nerve disease, pathologically it is characterized by the death of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and their axons. Traditionally, loss of RGCs has been judged based on damage to the optic nerve head (ONH) and visual field (VF) deficits. Because these assessments do not exactly reflect the extent to which the RGC population is affected, it became evident that any method enabling measurement of RGCs would advance both early detection and longitudinal monit...

Early detection is important in glaucoma management. By using optical coherence tomography (OCT), the subtle structural changes caused by glaucoma can be detected. Though OCT provided abundant parameters for comprehensive information, clinicians may be confused once the results conflict. Machine learning classifiers (MLCs) are good tools for considering numerous parameters and generating reliable diagnoses in glaucoma practice. Here we aim to compare different MLCs based on Spectralis OCT parame...

Glaucoma is an optic neuropathy characterized by progressive degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). Aberrations in several cytoskeletal proteins, such as tau have been implicated in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases, could be initiating factors in glaucoma progression and occurring prior to axon degeneration. Developmentally-regulated brain protein (Drebrin, DBN1) is an evolutionarily conserved actin-binding protein playing a prominent role in neurons and is implicated in ne...

The management of glaucoma relies on timely detection of progression of optic neuropathy over time; therefore, a reliable, repeatable, and reproducible test of the optic nerve and retinal nerve fiber layer structure is quintessential. The fast-paced improvement in technology has contributed a lot to testing of glaucoma; however, the slow progressive nature of the disease requires consistency of test results and also the comparability of technologies when evaluating patients longitudinally. In th...
