We wouldn't have expected in just 3 years to see any cognitive decline in this cohort, much less measurable cognitive decline with a significant association with retinal nerve fiber layer thickness.
Although corneal nerve assessments have shown increasingly valuable as a replacement for epidermal nerve fiber evaluation in diabetic peripheral neuropathy, the evaluation of corneal alterations in tracking HIV-induced neuropathy has yet to be explored.
Assessment of optic nerve head appearance can be divided into two parts, qualitative which includes evaluation of the contour of the neuro-retinal rim, appearance of the nerve fiber layer (NFL), presence of optic disc hemorrhages, extent of para-papillary atrophy and colour of the optic nerve head, while quantitative findings are Optic disc size (vertical disc diameter VDD), Cup disc ratio (CDR), and Rim disc ratio (RDR)10-12.
