To evaluate peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness and macular inner and outer retinal thickness using spectral domain optical coherence tomography
Seven (88 %) of eight eyes in Group I showed peripapillary RNFL thinning in at least one quadrant, whereas none of Groups II and III did so.
OCT is useful to detect peripapillary RNFL thinning in clinically evident retinopathy, and selective thinning of the macular inner retina can be detected in the absence of clinically apparent fundus changes.
