Comments and Conclusions• As in glaucoma, structure-function relationships are important in retinal disorders and help confirm abnormalitIes and specific diagnoses.• Some patients present with both a retinal disorder and an optic nerve disorder and both can result in field loss, sometimes even similar visual field defects. Such presentations require additional effort and thought (Case 1)•
Case 4: Zeiss Cirrus RNFL Analysis OU The RNFL is reduced inferiorly in both eyes. However, the temporal quadrant, which grossly corresponds to the papillo-macula bundle (PMB) is normal in thickness. Hence, there is no evidence that the reduction in VA is due to an optic nerve disorder.Based upon the central visual field reduction
Case 4: Zeiss Cirrus Ganglion Cell Analysis OU The Ganglion Cell Analysis is essentially normal in both eyes.
Case 4: Zeiss VISUCAM Fundus AutoFluorescence OU AF shows very slight granularity in the central 10 degrees or so in each eye.
Case 4: Zeiss Cirrus 5 Line Raster Scan OS Very similar results are found in the left eye.
