NoneOCTAPeripapillary RNFL thickness reduced significantly in high myopia compared to mild myopia.Wang et al. 2016 [1]
12 o’clockOCTPeripapillary RNFL thickness was thinner at 1, 7, and 12 o’clock sectors in the highly myopic eyes than in the mild myopic eyes.Leung et al. 2006 [9]
12 o’clockCirrus HD-OCTRNFL thickness of the 1, 2, 5, 6, and 12 o’clock sectors was significantly thinner in moderate to high myopia than in mild myopia.Seo et al. 2017 [11]
NoneOCT-1Mean peripapillary RNFL thickness did not vary with myopic SE or axial length for any OCT scan diameter investigated.Hoh et al. 2006 [14]
12 o’clockStratus OCTThe RNFL thickness in high myopia decreased significantly at 1, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 o’clock.Efendieva 2014 [10]
Quadrant/12 o’clockCirrus HD-OCTAverage and temporal RNFLs increased significantly as the AL increased.Choi et al. 2014 [15]
QuadrantSD-OCTGlobal and the temporal RNFL were thicker in the myopia group.AttaAllah et al. 2017 [16]
Six sectorsSD-OCTRNFL thickness in children was not affected by myopia.Goh et al. 2017 [17]
