Factors Determining the Morphology of Peripapillary Retinoschisis.

Clin Ophthalmol 2021 25;15:1293-1300. Epub 2021 Mar 25.

Department of Ophthalmology, The Jikei University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Purpose: We conducted cross-sectional examinations to determine the frequency of peripapillary retinoschisis (PRS) in eyes with glaucoma and suspected glaucoma and analyzed the pathogenesis of PRS by using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT).
