PURPOSE: To investigate the association between optical coherence tomography (OCT) parameters and long-term visual recovery following optic chiasm decompression surgery. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. METHODS: Consecutive patients who underwent pituitary or parasellar tumor resection between January 2009 to December 2018 were recruited in a single-center, 2-year prospective, longitudinal cohort study. Best-corrected visual acuity, visual fields, and OCT retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, macular thickness and volume were assessed preoperatively, and at 6 weeks, 6 months, and 2 years postoperatively. Long-term visual field recovery and maintenance were defined as a mean deviation ..
