BOUCAULT, Fernando Costa; MOURA, Rodrigo Thompson de; MITRE, Jorge  and  REHDER, José Ricardo Carvalho Lima. Analysis of the relation between macular thickness and thickness of the fiber nervous layers. Rev. bras.oftalmol. [online]. 2011, vol.70, n.1, pp.23-26. ISSN 0034-7280.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this work is to evaluate by means of the OCT Stratus the relation of the macular thickness with the thickness of nervous fiber layers. METHODS: In this work 106 eyes of the service of ophthalmology of the College of Medicine of the ABC had been analyzed. The study included 55 eyes that inside presented values of CFNR or above of the normal values in all the four quadrants and 51 eyes presenting values in only one or more quadrants that suspicion indicates or is of the limit of normality of the values of CFNR, comparing with macular thickness. RESULTS: This study it showed a reduction of the macular thickness in the patients who presented suspicion or reduction of the thickness of CFNR. CONCLUSION: The work demonstrated that the macular thickness can be a weapon important to evaluate a possible loss of nervous fiber layer.
