This is a observational cross sectional study conducted in tertiary care hospital in the department of ophthalmology to evaluate the effect of myopia on peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer thickness in various quadrants and clock hour positions using optical coherence tomography ,with a sample size of 100 myopic eyes.Out of 100, 30 were males and there is significant decrease in peripapillary retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in high myopics when compared to low and moderate myopics and also decrease retinal fibre layer thickness in all quadrants except temporal quadrant.
