Lamina cribrosa properties and the peripapillary vessel density for representative cases of branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) and normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) (A–E). The left eye of a patient with BRVO, showing a mean deviation (Humphrey visual field [HVF]) of −5.21 dB (F–J). The right eye of a patient with NTG, showing a mean deviation (HVF) of −5.41 dB. The eye with BRVO shows superior disc notching (A) and a superior retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defect (B). The peripapillary vessel density in the superotemporal segment of the superficial capillary plexus has decreased (C), with more superior disc cupping seen on a vertical B-scan (white arrow, E). The vessel density in the choriocapillaris is lower in the eye with NTG (I) than in the eye with BRVO. Moreover, the eye with NTG shows greater disc cupping and a more uniform LC (J) than does the eye with BRVO.
