Abstract

Purpose: To compare peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thicknesses measured by Cirrus HD optical coherence tomography (OCT) of patients with vitamin B12 deficiency with healthy controls and to evaluate the correlation between the peripapillary RNFL thickness and plasma vitamin B12 levels.
