  • New Study from Department of Ophthalmology University Medicine, Charitè, Campus, Virchow Clinic,

    Published On: 01 02 2016

    To distinguish between preperimetric glaucoma and a variant of the standard optic nerve head (ONH), morphology is probably one of the most difficult decisions in glaucoma diagnostics. Therefore, further study to find the most accurate parameters for early detection and diagnosis of preperimetric glaucoma is needed.
    However, the earliest detectable manifestation of glaucoma seems to be the structural abnormality of the ONH and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL). The aim of this study was to assess the correlation of the RNFL (SD-OCT), coefficients of the HRT3, and the DDLS in preperimetric glaucoma. In this study, the DDLS was objectively measured by the KOWA nonmyd WX 3D fundus camera (2D/3W nonmydriatic retinal camera;Kowa Company Ltd. Tokyo, Japan).
