Purpose: To compare the current (6.3) and a novel software version (6.12) of the RTVue-100 optical coherence tomograph (RTVue-OCT) for ganglion cell complex (GCC) and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) image segmentation and detection of glaucoma in high myopia. Materials and Methods: RNFLT and GCC scans were acquired with software version 6.3 of the RTVue-OCT on 51 highly myopic eyes (spherical refractive error ≤-6.0 D) of 51 patients, and were analyzed with both the software versions. Twenty-two eyes were nonglaucomatous, 13 were ocular hypertensive and 16 eyes had glaucoma. Results: No difference was seen for any RNFLT, and average GCC parameter between the software versions (paired t test, P≥0.084). Global loss volume was significantly lower (more normal) with version 6.12 than with version 6.3 (Wilcoxon signed-rank test, P
