Paper Abstract

Since the development of the ophthalmoscope ophthalmologists evaluated subjectively the retinal ocular fundus for abnormalities and changes that occur in glaucoma and found that thinning or loss of retinal nerve fiber layer (NFL) thickness may preceed visual field loss caused by glaucoma. As a quantitative and objective technique to detect glaucoma at an early stage as possible we have applied a photogrammetric technique to measure NFL thickness along the optic disc margin and peripapillary region using stereophotographs taken with the Donaldson fundus stereocamera.
