Abstract

Background: Opioids are addictive substances that have been shown to have neurotoxic effects on the brain. These neurotoxic effects may be associated with retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness. This study aims to examine retinal neural fiber layer thickness by optical coherence tomography (OCT) among opioid addicts.
