Correlation of the structural changes in OCT with functional visual field defects among Primary Open angle Glaucoma patients

Author : Dr. P. Rajani

Glaucoma is characterized by progressive degeneration of retinal ganglion cells and their axons that leads to nerve fiber layer loss, optic disc cupping, and consecutive glaucomatous visual field changes. Study is done in Department of ophthalmology, Fathima Institute of Medical Sciences, Kadapa, AP. A total of 52 eyes of 29 patients were included in the study. Mean age of the patients included in the study is 64.14+/- 11.43 years. Majority were Male patients (68.96%). Female patients were only 31.04%.
