Abstract

This report is of a patient with ischemic central retinal vein occlusion who underwent panretinal photocoagu- lation. Serial measurements of the retinal nerve fiber layer were performed using scanning laser polarimetry, which showed increased thickness of the peripapillary region as early as 2 weeks after the panretinal photocoagulation.
