Paper Abstract

Visual defects of glaucoma have been associated with retinal nerve fiber layer (NFL) defects, which can be detected as color and texture difference compared to normal NFL using photographs of NFL. Frequently these defects are asymmetric. A large defect exists in one eye while the other eye maintains its normal features. These evaluations of NFL defects, however, are subjective and two-dimensional. We have quantitated NFL thickness using photogrammetry and have measured its asymmetry in the eyes of human subjects.
