Abstract
To evaluate the ability of macular and multifocal (mf) pattern electroretinogram (PERG) to differentiate preperimetric glaucoma (PG) and glaucoma with hemifield loss (GHL) from controls, to compare the discrimination ability of PERG and fourier-domain optical coherence tomography (FD-OCT), and to assess the relationship between measurements.Standard automated perimetry, steady-state and transient PERG and mfPERG measurements were obtained from PG (n=14, 24 eyes), GHL (n=5, 7 eyes), and controls (n=19, 22 eyes). Circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cpRNFL), full-thickness macula, and segmented macular layer thicknesses on FD-OCT were investigated. Measurements were compared using mixed effects linear models. The relationships between measurements and the diagnostic performance of each technology were assessed.Compared with controls, average P50 peak time transient PERG responses were reduced in PG and GHL, whereas average latency and amplitude steady-state and mfPERG responses were abnormal only in GHL. cpRNFL and macular thickness measurements in PG and GHL differed significantly from controls. A significant relationship was found between PERG and most FD-OCT or SAP parameters. Partial least squares discriminant analysis revealed that OCT parameters, along with mfPERG and transient PERG parameters had similar ability to discriminate PG and GHL from healthy controls.PERG and OCT parameters may be abnormal, with significant correlations between measurements, in PG eyes. Both technologies may be useful for detection of early glaucoma.

To assess the extent to which glaucomatous damage of the macula can be detected using the summary statistics of a commercial report based upon the circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cpRNFL) thickness obtained with frequency domain optical coherence tomography (fdOCT).One hundred forty-three eyes of 143 open-angle glaucoma patients and suspects (56.4 ± 13.8 years) had 10-2 visual fields (VFs) and fdOCT macular and disc cube scans. RNFL and retinal ganglion cell plus inner plexiform layer ...

PURPOSE: We evaluated the ability of transient pattern electroretinogram (PERG) parameters to differentiate between eyes with visual field (VF) loss and resolved papilledema from pseudotumor cerebri syndrome (PTC) and controls, to compare PERG and optical coherence tomography (OCT) with regard to discrimination ability, and to assess the correlation between PERG, frequency domain OCT (FD-OCT), and VF measurements. METHODS: The VFs and full-field stimulation PERGs based on 48 and 14-min checks we...

To determine the effect of age on the thickness of individual retinal layers, measured with spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), in a population of healthy Caucasians. One hundred and twenty subjects with an age ranging between 18 and 81 years were examined with SD-OCT. Mean layer thickness was calculated for seven retinal layers, in the fovea (region 1 of the 9 Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study [ETDRS] regions); in the pericentral ring (ETDRS regions 2 to 5); and the ...

RESULTS. The three RNFL parameters with the largest AUCs were average RNFL thickness (0.89 6 0.03), inferior hemisphere average thickness (0.87 6 0.03), and inferior quadrant average thickness (0.85 6 0.03). The three ONH parameters with the largest AUCs were vertical cupto-disc ratio (0.74 6 0.04), rim area (0.72 6 0.05), and rim volume (0.72 6 0.05). The three macular parameters with the largest AUCs were GCC average thickness (0.79 6 0.04), GCC inferior thickness (0.79 6 0.05), and GCC superi...

To assess pattern electroretinogram (PERG) changes in patients with established or suspected primary open angle glaucoma (POAG).Transient PERG using LV Prasad eye electrodes were performed in 76 normal, 32 glaucomatous and 22 glaucoma suspect eyes. The P50 amplitude, N95 amplitude and P50 latency were analyzed. The results were further analyzed with receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves and discriminant function analysis (DFA).The P50 and N95 amplitude of the POAG and glaucoma suspect g...

Purpose: To probe susceptibility of retinal ganglion cells (RGC) to physiological stressors associated with moderate head-down body tilt in patients with suspicion of glaucoma or early manifest glaucoma (EMG). Methods: One hundred nine subjects with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) ≥20/20 and no disease other than glaucoma [glaucoma suspects (GS)=79, EMG=14, normal controls (NC)=16 and comparable age range were tested. Noncontact intraocular pressure (IOP), pattern electroretinogram (PERG), a...

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...

Objective To investigate causes of disagreement among 3 glaucoma diagnostic techniques: standard automated achromatic perimetry (SAP), the multifocal visual evoked potential technique (mfVEP), and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Methods In a prospective cross-sectional study, 138 eyes of 69 patients with glaucomatous optic neuropathy were tested using SAP, the mfVEP, and OCT. Eyes with the worse and better mean deviations (MDs) were analyzed separately. If the results of 2 tests were consist...

The retinal ganglion cells (RGC) may be considered an easily accessible pathophysiological site of degenerative processes in neurological diseases, such as the RGC damage detectable in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients with (HON) and without a history of optic neuritis (NON). We aimed to assess and interrelate RGC functional and structural damage in different retinal layers and retinal sites. We included 12 NON patients, 11 HON patients and 14 healthy controls for cross-sectional multifocal patte...

With the advent of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT), imaging of the posterior segment of the eye can be carried out rapidly at multiple anatomical locations, including the optic nerve head (ONH), circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cp-RNFL), and macula. There is now ample evidence to support the role of SD-OCT imaging of the macula for detection of early glaucoma. Macular SD-OCT measurements demonstrate high reproducibility, and evidence on its utility for detection o...
