RNFL analysis is an essential part of the glaucoma evaluation, since, in reality, the RNFL is the tissue damaged by glaucoma. Structural damage almost always precedes functional damage, and the techniques described in this chapter can often detect the earliest damage, as well as detect progressive RNFL loss often before the visual field changes.1 The early detection of glaucoma and its progression is becoming more and more important as the population ages and life expectancy increases. RNFL analysis plays a major role in glaucoma management, allowing for earlier treatment to reduce the risk of vision loss.
