Does a slightly thinner RNFL produce any visual disturbances?

My RNFL thickness is 79 microns in one eye, 80 in another.
My spherical power is -6, -5.75 respectively.
I also got an A scan that is 26.16 mm and 26.11 mm, which is probably the reason I have borderline thin RNFL.

My question is, does / will this thinning cause any visual disturbances if the retina is intact?

Eye pressure and slit lamp examination shown that my retina is in good shape. I'm aware of the possible complications that high myopia can cause but I wonder if there are any visual defects that concern the retina (not refractive errors) that are apparent in myopes with an otherwise healthy retina?
