    Purpose: To evaluate thicknesses of sclera and lamina cribrosa (LC) in central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). Method: Thirty-two patients with CRVO (mean age 62.2 +/- 11.6 years, women/men 18/14) and 35 age- and sex-matched healthy volunteers were included into the study. Scleral thickness was measured at scleral spur and at 1 to 3 mm from scleral spur in four quadrants (temporal, nasal, super, and inferior) using anterior segment optical coherence tomography. Lamina cribrosa was measured using optic disk enhanced depth imaging optical coherence tomography. Results: The sclera was thicker in affected eyes of the CRVO group than healthy subjects at scleral spur in four quadrants (738.7 +/- 30.9 mu m vs. 702 +/- 30.8 mu m in temporal, 700.4 +/- 19.7 mu m vs. 673 +/- 13.7 mu m in superior, 693 +/- 19.3 mu m vs. 665.3 +/- 24.2 mu m in nasal, 810.7 +/- 28.9 mu m vs. 784.5 +/- 23.7 mu m in inferior quadrants, respectively;P< 0.05 for all). Lamina cribrosa thickness in affected eyes of the CRVO group was significantly higher than that of healthy subjects (285.2 +/- 12.7 mu m vs. 266.4 +/- 10.7 mu m, respectively;P< 0.01). The correlation between scleral thickness and LC thickness was moderate at scleral spur of temporal and superior quadrants of affected eyes (r = 0.510 and r = 0.420, respectively). Conclusion: Thicknesses of sclera and LC are increased in the CRVO, which may play a role in the pathogenesis of the disease.
