Abstract

Background: The remaining retinal neurones or layered structure in the degenerating retina have been the prerequisite for epiretinal or subretinal retinal prostheses. Aim: To detect the layered structure in the eyes of patients with retinitis pigmentosa by optical coherence tomography. Methods: In a prospective non-comparative study, 115 eyes of 58 consecutive patients with retinitis pigmentosa underwent optical coherence tomography to obtain horizontal and vertical retinal cross-section images at the centre of the macula. The number of high-reflectance retinal layers, one, two or three layers, was tested to determine whether it correlates with best-corrected visual acuity. Results: The best-corrected visual acuity was significantly better in the eyes in which more retinal layers were detected (p
