PURPOSE: Glaucoma damages the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL). Both RNFL thickness and retardance can be used to assess the damage, but birefringence, the ratio of retardance to thickness, is a property of the tissue itself. This study investigated the relationship between axonal cytoskeleton and RNFL birefringence in retinas with hypertensive damage. MATERIALS AND METHODS: High intraocular pressure (IOP) was induced unilaterally in rat eyes. RNFL retardance in isolated retinas was measured...

The lamina cribrosa (LC) is believed to be site of injury to retina ganglion cell axons in glaucoma. The ability to visualize this structure helps us increase the understanding of pathophysiological process of glaucoma. At the same time, it is helpful in the early detection and treatment of glaucoma. While for many years the researches on the LC were essentially dependent on histology. With the development of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in recent years, it is possible to image the LC in vivo in both animals and human...

Optical coherence tomography(OCT) had become the most important imaging technique in ophthalmology. OCT is able to segment the retinal nerve fiber layer and retinal ganglion cell layer accurately. Quantitative analysis can be performed for both layers. OCT is very important to evaluate the neuron and axon loss in optic nerve diseases diagnosis. Meanwhile, OCT has great value for differentiating glaucoma and macular diseases from optic nerve diseases. This review presented OCT application in optic nerve diseases diagnosis, differentiation diagnosis, the key points in use and the features of en face OCT and OCT angiography...

OBJECTIVE: The primary objective of this article is to present a summary of different types of image processing methods employed for the detection of glaucoma, a serious eye disease. INTRODUCTION: Glaucoma affects the optic nerve in which retinal ganglion cells become dead, and this leads to loss of vision. The principal cause is the increase in intraocular pressure, which occurs in open-angle and angle-closure glaucoma, the two major types affecting the optic nerve...

Since the introduction of commercial optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems, the ophthalmic imaging modality has rapidly expanded and it has since changed the paradigm of visualization of the retina and revolutionized the management and diagnosis of neuro-retinal diseases, including glaucoma. OCT remains a dynamic and evolving imaging modality, growing from time-domain OCT to the improved spectral-domain OCT, adapting novel image analysis and processing methods, and onto the newer swept-source OCT and the implementation of adaptive optics (AO) into OCT...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) has become an integral component of modern glaucoma practice. Utilizing color codes, OCT analysis has rendered glaucoma diagnosis and follow-up simpler and faster for the busy clinician. However, green labeling of OCT parameters suggesting normal values may confer a false sense of security, potentially leading to missed diagnoses of glaucoma and/or glaucoma progression. RECENT FINDINGS: Conditions in which OCT color coding may be falsely negative (i...

Pathologic myopia (PM) is the only myopia that causes the loss of best-corrected visual acuity. The main reason for best-corrected visual acuity loss is complications specific to PM, such as myopic maculopathy, myopic traction maculopathy, and myopic optic neuropathy (or glaucoma). The meta-analyses of the PM study group (META-PM study) made a classification system for myopic maculopathy. On the basis of this study, PM has been defined as eyes having atrophic changes equal to or more severe than diffuse atrophy...

Glaucoma is a medical term describing a group of progressive optic neuropathies characterized by degeneration of retinal ganglion cells and retinal nerve fibre layer and resulting in changes in the optic nerve head. Glaucoma is a leading cause of irreversible vision loss worldwide. With the aging population it is expected that the prevalence of glaucoma will continue to increase. Despite recent advances in imaging and visual field testing techniques that allow establishment of earlier diagnosis and treatment initiation, significant numbers of glaucoma patients are undiagnosed and present late in the course of their disease...
