High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography for Detection of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Loss in Band Atrophy of the Optic Nerve
High-Resolution Optical Coherence Tomography for Detection of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer Loss in Band Atrophy of the Optic Nerve
The purpose of this study is to compare the abilities of high-speed,high-resolution (HR) optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Stratus OCT for detection of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) loss in eyes with band atrophy (BA) of the optic nerve.
