To evaluate the repeatability of retinal layer thickness measurements in normal eyes imaged using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS: Sixty-eight eyes of 34 healthy subjects were enrolled in this study. Imaging was performed 4 times using 9 × 9 mm macular scans with SD-OCT (RS 3000 Advance HD OCT, NIDEK, Gamagori, Japan) at the same visit by an experienced examiner. After automatic retinal segmentation (layering) in 5 layers, the thickness of each layer was calculated. Macular thickness of 9 Early Treatment of Diabetic Retinopathy Study (ETDRS)-like regions was obtained. Repeatability for each of the 9 subfield areas was calculated by their repeatability coefficients and intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs). RESULTS: There was no significant difference in average retinal thickness and each retinal layer thickness between all measurements acquired by the experienced examiner. The ICCs of retinal layer thickness ranged from 0.826 to 0.847 for the ganglion cell layer + inner plexiform layer, inner nuclear layer + outer plexiform layer and outer nuclear layer + external limiting membrane in the fovea. The ICCs were greater than 0.909 for the other intra-retinal layers in all 9 ETDRS subfield thickness between all measurement pairs. CONCLUSIONS: Excellent repeatability was observed for SD-OCT retinal segmented layer thickness measurements in healthy subjects.
