To explore the relationship between optic disc hemorrhage and retinal ganglion cell layer thickness in patients with primary open angle glaucoma.
A retrospective review of 50 patients with disc hemorrhages was conducted. Patients who were imaged with spectral domain optical coherence tomography with ganglion cell analysis were included in the study. Macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer measurements were obtained using Zeiss Cirrus HD-OCT software.
Patients with optic disc hemorrhage suffered from ganglion cell layer thinning. Average macular ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer measurements were significantly (p<0.05) thinner in eyes which suffered a disc hemorrhage (66um) when compared to fellow eyes without a history of disc hemorrhage (75um). The average amount of time between disc hemorrhage discovery and latest ganglion cell layer analysis was 1,105 days.
Patients with optic disc hemorrhage exhibited macular ganglion-inner plexiform layer thinning measured by spectral domain OCT.
