Paper Abstract

The early identification of glaucomatous development is extremely important for treatment of glaucoma. Analysis of optic-nerve-head features may play a crucial role for early glaucoma diagnostics. Here we propose a critical parameter, viz., nerve tissue area, which may prove to be extremely useful for detection of glaucoma in early stages. We report a novel and robust algorithm for OCT-based automatic, objective extraction of critical optic-nerve-head features such as optic disc, nerve tissue area, and optic cup for the first time.
