PARTICIPANTS: We enrolled 131 eyes with early glaucoma (mean deviation >-6.0 dB) and 132 age- and refractive error-matched healthy eyes.

METHODS: Macular GCA maps were obtained using Cirrus HD-OCT. The location, angular ...

PURPOSE: We investigated the distribution of central corneal thickness (CCT), and its association with age, sex, intraocular pressure (IOP), anterior chamber depth (ACD), axial length (AL), and the presence of systemic hypertension and diabetes in a Korean population.

METHODS: Our study is a population-based glaucoma prevalence study of residents aged ≥40 years in Namil-meon area, located in central South Korea. All subjects underwent a complete ophthalmic examination that included CCT ...

PURPOSE: To compare the rate of change of circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (cRNFL) thickness, macular volume and thickness, and optic nerve head (ONH) parameters assessed using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) between eyes with progressing and nonprogressing glaucoma.

DESIGN: Longitudinal, observational study.

PARTICIPANTS: Two hundred seventy-nine eyes from 162 glaucoma patients followed for an average of 2.2 years.

METHODS: Eyes were classified as ...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in longitudinal retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) as determined by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) after optic disc hemorrhage (DH) in glaucomatous eyes.

METHODS: A total of 65 eyes with unilateral DH and 65 contralateral eyes without DH were subjected to RNFLT measurements by using OCT at the time of DH detection and at 1 year (12±2 mo) and 2 years (24±2 mo) later. For the definition of ...

PURPOSE: Transforming growth factor-beta2 is known to be present at elevated levels in the aqueous humor of patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and diabetes but not in uveitis-related secondary glaucoma. We investigated total TGF-beta2 levels and levels of the active form of TGF-beta2 in the aqueous humor of eyes with different types of glaucoma.

METHODS: The concentration of the total and active form of TGF-beta2 was measured in 63 patients with primary open angle glaucoma, ...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the surgical outcomes of the implantation of an additional Ahmed glaucoma valve (AGV) into the eyes of patients with refractory glaucoma following previous AGV implantation.

METHODS: This study is a retrospective review of the clinical histories of 23 patients who had undergone a second AGV implantation after a failed initial implantation. Age, sex, prior surgery, glaucoma type, number of medications, intraocular pressure (IOP), visual acuity, and surgical ...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: To investigate the prevalence of, and factors associated with, errors in neuroretinal rim measurement by Cirrus high-definition (HD) spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) in myopic eyes.

METHODS: Neuroretinal rim thicknesses of 255 myopic eyes were measured by Cirrus HD-OCT. The prevalence of, and factors associated with, optic disc margin detection error and cup margin detection error were assessed by analysing 72 cross-sectional optic nerve head (ONH) ...
