Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Changes on Optical Coherence Tomography in Suspected Cases of Glaucoma.
Ophthalmol Update Jan ;15(3):216-8.
Objective: To assess retinal nerve fiber layer changes on optical coherence tomography in suspected cases of glaucoma. Methodology: 127cases suspected of having glaucoma on clinical findings and referred to the eye diagnostic section of Civil Hospital, Karachi over a period of 3 months were included in the study. These patients underwent optical coherence tomography and retinal nerve fiber layer changes were subsequently analyzed. Results: 52 eyes had normal RNFL measurements and 75 had positive changes in the RNFL. Conclusion: Significant number of eyes had RNFL changes which needed to be started on treatment.
