Abstract

The circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness was assessed by spectral domain optical coherent tomography (SD-OCT) before and after surgical reduction of intraocular pressure in an eye with primary infantile glaucoma. In this case, a postoperative reduction of cupping and a subsequent increase in neuroretinal rim area is associated with a paradoxical thinning of the RNFL. This is the first-known characterization of cupping reversal using SD-OCT.
