PurposeTo describe the Stratus optical coherence tomography (OCT) retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness profile of dominant optic atrophy (DOA), to differentiate it from that of glaucoma.MethodsRNFL thickness was measured using Stratus OCT in 32 eyes of 16 DOA patients.ResultsThe temporal-most clock hour measurement was outside the 95% normal limit in 29 of the 32 DOA eyes (90.6%). The pattern of RNFL damage was bilaterally symmetrical in location and severity in all subjects.ConclusionStratus OCT shows characteristic findings differentiating DOA from glaucoma.
