“Is Measurement of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Thickness Sensitive to Detect Early Glaucomatous Damage?”

In clinical diagnosis of glaucoma, the thickness of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) is often assessed by optical methods, such as OCT. Glaucoma damages axonal ultrastructure; such structural change manifests itself as changes in RNFL optical properties. Direct measurements of RNFL optical properties should provide more sensitive detection of early axonal damage than RNFL thickness assessment. This presentation will discuss the relationship between changes of RNFL optical properties, reflectance and birefringence, and its underlying ultrastructure in the context of glaucoma.
