Abstract

To the Editors:
We report characteristics of the optic nerve head, retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), and macular thickness on optic disk hypoplasia in a patient with optic disk hypoplasia. All optic nerve head dimensions were reduced. In addition, mean RNFL thickness was only 13 µm compared with 103 µm in the fellow eye. Parafoveal macular thickness was also decreased. In optic disk hypoplasia, optical coherence tomography (OCT) shows not only decreased optic disk dimensions, but also grossly reduced RNFL and parafoveal thickness. [more...]
