Abstract

PURPOSE:

To describe the Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness profile of dominant optic atrophy (DOA), to differentiate it from that of glaucoma.

METHODS:

RNFL thickness was measured using Stratus OCT in 32 eyes of 16 DOA patients.

RESULTS:

The temporal-most clock hour measurement was outside the 95% normal limit in 29 of the 32 DOA eyes (90.6%). The pattern of RNFL damage was bilaterally symmetrical in location and severity in all subjects.

CONCLUSION:

Stratus OCT shows characteristic findings differentiating DOA from glaucoma.
