Customized measurements improve structure-function link in glaucoma

July 31, 2015

Visual field and OCT measurements alone did not improve structure-function correlation analysis in a group of glaucoma patients, according to a study.

“The highest structure-function correlation in our study was obtained with customized ONH sectors and individualized spatial mapping using anatomic features. We suggest considering customized 30° ONH sectors based on observed structural damage instead of fixed, predefined sectors to unmask localized defects in structure-function studies and in the clinic,” the study authors said.
