Final Observations and Conclusions

  • Cases 5 & 6 demonstrate the utility of OCT and mERG in differentiation of optic nerve vs retinal insults

  • OCT measurement of RNFL

    • Reproducibility of 10-20 µ

    • Adequate for long-term follow-up of progressive RNFL damage

  • OCT may prove useful in compressive disease in predicting the likelihood of visual recovery based upon remaining RNFL available at time of diagnosis
