    There is no evidence for an optimum test set in the diagnosis and follow-up of glaucoma. Different technologies give variable results with poor agreement. Risk of bias in the published study designs is significant. Sensitivity and specificity values indicate a large variability. Long-term follow up could serve as the most appropriate reference standard.

    A significant widening and deepening of the optic disk cup, Bruch´s membrane opening enlargement and prelaminar tissue thinning occurred following intravitreal aflibercept injection (IAI) for neovascular age macular degeneration. Eyes showing greater morphological changes associated with a lower IOP increase post-injection, suggesting that optic nerve head compliance might buffer the effect of IAI on IOP values.

    One hundred healthy, young myopic eyes were divided in two groups by their CCT (matched for age, and refractive error). The group with the thinnest CCT presented a significantly thinner OCT-RNFL. Thin CCT is a well-known risk factor for glaucoma development. Our finding that a thin CCT is associated with thinner RNFL suggests a connection between both parameters.


  4. Miguel Tudela-MolinoMiguel Tudela-Molino, Murcia, Spain
    Ninety-nine glaucoma patients and 58 controls performed the Pittsburgh, Berlin and Epworth questionnaires, and standard automated perimetry and OCT (macular and peripapillary scans). Glaucomatous patients had poorer results on the Pittsburgh and Berlin questionnaires. Both groups showed worse perimetric results with higher sleepiness. Finally, higher risk of OSAS was related to reduced inner retinal thicknesses in the glaucomatous group.
