Retinal nerve fibre layer polarimetry: histological and clinical comparison.

Abstract:

AIMS: To compare histological thickness of the retinal nerve fibre layer in the primate with retardation measurements obtained in vivo using the Mark II Nerve Fiber Analyzer (NFA, Laser Diagnostic Technologies, San Diego, USA). METHODS: Scanning laser polarimetry was performed on both eyes of a healthy anaesthetised adult primate (Macaca mulatta). The retinal nerve fibre layer thickness was measured in the eye with the best polarimetry image. A nerve fibre layer thickness map was scaled and a...
