Disturbed peripapillary microcirculation may have a role in the development of glaucoma.
Recently, using noninvasive optical coherence tomography (OCT) angiography with the
AngioVue OCT (Optovue Inc., -Fremont, CA, USA), reduced peripapillary vessel density
was found in glaucoma. In this case series, we investigate the relationship between
retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) damage and peripapillary angioflow density (PAFD,
% of the analyzed retinal area) in the superotemporal (ST), inferotemporal (IT), and
temporal (T) peripapillary sectors in normal, ocular hypertensive (OHT), and primary
open-angle glaucoma eyes.
