Purpose: The aim of this study is to compare, using optical coherence tomography (OCT), the changes in the thickness of the macular nerve fiber layer (mNFL), macular ganglion cell layer (mGCL), macular inner plexiform layer (mIPL) and peripapillary global retinal nerve fiber layer (gRNFL) (in a span of 3 years) in surgically treated eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG).
Methods: The medical records of 32 consecutive POAG patients who underwent trabeculectomy with mitomycin-C, between January 2013 and December 2014, were retrospectively reviewed. Pre- and postoperative measurements of IOP and OCT were analyzed 1, 2 and 3 years after the operation. Read More
