Paper Abstract

In this paper we present imaging and morphometric analysis of a myopic Optic Nerve Head (ONH) using an 830nm wavelength Fourier domain optical coherence tomography system. The thinner prelaminar neural tissue and shallower optic cup in the myopic subject allows visualization of the tissue structures such as anterior laminar surface and lamina cribrosa that are often challenging to image due to their depth. From these structures we measured volumetric anatomical parameters and topographical tissue thickness correlated with glaucomatous structural damage in the ONH.
