Abstract

PURPOSE. To demonstrate the effect of glaucoma on the optical attenuation coefficient of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) images. METHODS. We analyzed images of the peripapillary areas in 10 healthy and 30 glaucomatous eyes (mild, moderate, and advanced glaucoma, 10 eyes each), scanned with the Spectralis OCT (Heidelberg Engineering GmbH, Dossenheim, Germany). To calculate the RNFL attenuation coefficient (μ
