Abstract

We present in vivo human retinal blood flow investigation using Fourier domain optical coherence tomography. A pilot study was performed to evaluate the total retinal blood flow in glaucoma patients and normal subjects. For normal people, the measured total retinal flow was between 40.8 and 52.9 μl/minute. The measured venous flow for glaucoma patients was from 23.6 to 43.11 μl/minute. The retinal flow of glaucoma patients was lower than that of normal subjects. Retinal blood flow was highly correlated with visual field parameters in glaucoma patients.
