Purpose : To evaluate the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) and central corneal thickness (CCT) in patients with exfoliation syndrome (XFS)

Methods : In this comparative case series we measures RNFL thickness and CCT 30 patients with XFS and 30 age and sex matched healthy subjects who met the inclusion criteria.

Results : Average RNFL in XFS group were significantly thinner than controls (94.36±8.70 µm vs. 100.80±6.68 µm) (P=0.002). In the analysis with regard to quadrants, no statistically significant reduction in RNFL thickness was found between groups. XFS patients and controls did not differ in CCT measurements (522.90±40.71 µm vs. 517.30±30.50 µm) (P=0.549).

Conclusion : No significant differences in CCT and RNFL thickness in temporal, nasal, superior and inferior quadrants between XFS and controls were observed. However, average RNFL measurements in eyes with XFS showed lower values.
