To evaluate the ocular pulse amplitude (OPA), the posterior pole asymmetry analysis (PPAA), the peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, macular thickness and visual field testings in patients with migraine
Pamukkale University, Department of Ophthalmology and Neurology, Denizli, Turkey
40 migraine patients and 44 age and sex matched controls were included in this study. OPA was measured by dynamic contour tonometry (DCT), PPAA, RNFL and macular thickness were measured by Heidelberg SD-OCT and standard perimetry was performed using Humphrey automated field analyzer.
The difference in OPA was not staticially significant between two groups (p≥0.05). In the PPAA there was no significiant difference between two hemispheres in each eye by cell to cell comparision (p≥0.05). The RNFL thickness was significantly reduced in temporal and nasal superior sectors in migraine group (p≤0.05). There was no correlation between RNFL thickness and OPA values. There was no difference in mean deviation (MD) and pattern standard deviation (PSD) between two groups.
Patients with migraine have normal OPA values, no significiant asymmetry of posterior pole and decreased peripapillary RNFL thickness in temporal and nasal superior sectors compared with controls. These findings suggest that choroidal circulation may not be affected during the chronic course of disease, and RNFL thinning is only significiant in peripapillary region.
