Title: Spectral-domain OCT peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness measurements in patients with stargardt disease
Author(s): Genead, Mohamed A.; Fishman, Gerald A.; Anastasakis, Anastasios

Abstract: Aims To evaluate the presence of peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) defects in patients with Stargardt disease by using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Methods Fifty-two eyes of 27 patients with Stargardt disease underwent peripapillary RNFL thickness measurements using SD-OCT. Results Twenty-seven patients with Stargardt disease were enrolled. Their mean (6SD) age was 38.3 (14.7) years. Fourteen patients (51.9%) showed a thinning of the peripapillary RNFL in one or more quadrants in at least one eye, and four patients (14.8%) in both eyes. Five patients (18.5%) showed a thickening of the peripapillary RNFL in at least one eye, and four patients (14.8%) in both eyes. Conclusion This study demonstrated the presence of defects in the peripapillary RNFL thickness in patients with Stargardt disease by using SD-OCT. It would be clinically prudent that Stargardt patients considered for various treatment options be considered for RNFL thickness measurements.
