Abstract
 
Purpose
 

To determine if there is any correlation between Bruch Membran Opening Area and CRVO, and if a small BMO area is a risk factor for CRVO.<br /> To our knowledge, this is the first study using the Heidelberg Spectralis' new algorithm.

 
Methods
 

We compare the Bruch Membran Opening Area, as measured by the new algorithm of the Spectralis (R) Optical Coherence Tomography in 20 patients with Central Retinal Vein Occlusion, their fellow eyes, 20 glaucomatous eyes and 20 normal eyes, comparable in age, gender and sex.

 
Results
 

The first results show no correlation between BMO area and CRVO, as hypothesized by Hayreh.

 
Conclusions
 

In this small study, we found no correlation between BMO and CRVO.<br /> We need further studies and larger samples to confirm these results.
