Retinal microstructural changes persist in eyes with chiasmal compression post-decompression surgery

Takeaway

  • Longitudinal changes in retinal microstructure persist and progress in eyes with chiasmal compression after decompression surgery.

Why this matters

    This is the first analysis of longitudinal changes in all layers of retinal microstructure. The novel findings provide further information on biological and anatomical changes following chiasmal compression. The observation that preoperative thickness of the inner retinal layers is linked to postoperative visual field recovery could help to improve post-surgery management.
