Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The Nerve Fiber Analyzer, a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope, was used to measure the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (NFL) in a glaucoma population. The authors studied the correlation between NFL thickness and the perimetric defects. The NFL was found to be statistically thinner in comparison to a normal control group of subjects. The correlation between the perimetric index MD and the NFA was statistically significant only for the lower quadrant of retinal NFL. The correspondence between thinner NFL and perimetric defects was investigated.
