To determined the utility of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in patients with subclinical optic neuritis
OCT was performed on 4 patients (6 eyes) with subclinical optic neuritis. The parameters used to defined an eye has subclinical optic neuritis was the neurophthalmic examination, visual fields and photos of the fundus of the eye
Four patients with subclinical optic neuritis by multiple sclerosis were observed during the follow consultation as a causal. Three patients developed unilateral optic neuritis and one patient bilateral optic neuritis. The visual field demonstrated paracental scotomas; the optic disc photo showed decreased excavation during the crisis and increased the cup after event resolved. The optical coherence tomography demonstrated decreased the measurement parameter of the optic disc with incremented of the values after the optic neuritis disappear. Also, a bigger cup was observed than the initial size.
Optic disc cup OCT measurement could be a good indicator of subclinical optic neuritis.
