Paper Abstract

Changes in parapapillary retina height may be an early indicator of glaucomatous tissue damage. The subject of this study is the development of an automatic computer analysis for the height variations of the parapapillary retina obtained from simultaneously taken pairs of stereophotographs of optic nerve heads. The exact evaluation of stereo photographs is, so far, processed manually in the USA (Takamoto, Boston) in a timeconsuming procedure. An automatic analysis can be considered as an essential improvement in glaucoma diagnosis.
