Abstract

PURPOSE: Recently in glaucoma, different mapping schemes to combine structural and functional information within the macula have been proposed. This paper aims to investigate whether the changes in foveal shape parameters are important in the mapping between structure and function within the macular region. METHODS: Twenty younger adults (aged 24- to 33-years old) and 10 older adults (aged 62- to 76-years old) participated. On each subject, four foveally-centered radial spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) scans with 45° of separation between each scan were acquired. After scan acquisition, foveal shape was extracted by fitting a previously proposed model that has been used ..
