Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
OCT does not measure anything beyond the sclera (the wall of your eye). As such the thickness measurements you have do not give any data on what the retrobulbar part of your optic nerve is like.
That being said, since you vision is normal and you are having no problems I would bet that the retrobulbar part of your optic nerve is just fine.
Does this answer your question to your satisfaction?
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. And please let me know if the rating system gives you any troubles. Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick
We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
