Table 2 Patients’ profiles in both study groups. BCVA, best-corrected visual acuity; IQR, interquartile range; D, diopter; SE, spherical equivalent; ACC, anterior corneal curvature; AL, axial length; SD-OCT, spectral domain optical coherence tomography; pRNFL, peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer; BMO, Bruch’s membrane opening; MRW, minimum rim width). a Median was calculated

From: Do biometric parameters improve the quality of optic nerve head measurements with spectral domain optical coherence tomography?
