A study of OCT retinal nerve fiber layer

To assess the connection between axial length (AL) and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) profile and to describe contrasts in optical coherence tomography RNFL of nearsighted glaucomatous eyes contrasted with non-glaucomatous eyes.

A survey of 170 eyes of 89 subjects with optical biometry and optical soundness tomography RNFL evaluation was led.

Temporal RNFL thickness demonstrated no relationship with AL in either glaucomatous or non-glaucomatous eyes. Nasal diminishing was most unequivocally connected with glaucoma in nearsighted eyes. Both nearsighted glaucomatous and non-glaucomatous eyes had a mean RNFL thickness of 16– 22 µm more slender than mean RNFL thickness of typical AL eyes.

A normal of 16– 22 µm diminishing of RNFL contrasted with nomogram can be endured in patients with long AL. Unmistakable nasal diminishing likely speaks to changes from pivotal stretching. Transient RNFL diminishing in those with long AL has a tendency to be gentle, and noteworthy diminishing should raise doubt for glaucoma.
