Association of Myopia With Peripapillary Perfused Capillary Density in Patients With Glaucoma

Association of Myopia With Peripapillary Perfused Capillary Density in Patients With Glaucoma Key PointsQuestionDo patients whose eyes have myopia, open-angle glaucoma, or both exhibit decreased peripapillary perfused capillary density? FindingsIn this cross-sectional study, 87 people with myopic eyes with glaucoma, 17 patients with myopic eyes without glaucoma, 93 patients with non-myopic eyes with glaucoma, and 51 control participants were assessed for perfused capillary density via optical coherence tomography angiography and customized software. The presence of PCD was associated with a progressive decrease from control status and myopia without glaucoma to nonmyopia with glaucoma to myopia with glaucoma. MeaningThese findings suggest that open-angle glaucoma might have a greater effect on perfused capillary density than myopia does. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA Ophthalmology American Medical Association

Abstract

Key PointsQuestionDo patients whose eyes have myopia, open-angle glaucoma, or both exhibit decreased peripapillary perfused capillary density? FindingsIn this cross-sectional study, 87 people with myopic eyes with glaucoma, 17 patients with myopic eyes without glaucoma, 93 patients with non-myopic eyes with glaucoma, and 51 control participants were assessed for perfused capillary density via optical coherence tomography angiography and customized software. The presence of PCD was associated with a progressive decrease from control status and myopia without glaucoma to nonmyopia with glaucoma to myopia with glaucoma. MeaningThese findings suggest that open-angle glaucoma might have a greater effect on perfused capillary density than myopia does.
