Subject Optic Neuropathy; Perimetry; Visual Fields
Description The peripapillary choroid shares a blood supply with and is directly apposed to the optic nerve, and therefore may contribute to the pathogenesis of non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION). Prior studies evaluating peripapillary choroidal thickness (PCT) and choroidal vascularity index (CVI), the ratio of the vascular area to total choroid area, have produced mixed results and have not investigated the relationship between PCT and CVI or demonstrated functional correlates. We hypothesized that PCT and CVI changes would correlate with visual function in patients presenting with NAION.
