The retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) contains ganglion cell axons, which are one of the components of the data pathway from the retinal photoreceptors to the visual cortex in the brain.
The relationship between these test results and retinal nerve fiber thickness was adjusted for age, sex, race, socioeconomic status, height, refraction, and intraocular pressure.
They sought to determine whether SIV infection leads to decreases in corneal nerve fiber density, and whether corneal nerve fiber density correlates with epidermal nerve fiber length counts, thereby setting the stage for follow-up investigation using corneal confocal microscopy.
