Abstract

Aims: The aim of the present study was to investigate retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and to evaluate the relationship between RNFL thickness and carotid intima media thickness (CIMT).
