Abstract Details



Purpose:

To determine whether optic disc size influence on C/D ratio in glaucoma patients.

Setting:

Eye Clinic, University Clinical Center of Sarajevo

Methods:

Total of 180 eyes were examined and divided into three groups (small, medium and large diameters)based on optic disc diameter. In all patients after anamnesis and standard ophthalmologic examination (best corrected visual acuity, Goldman aplanatic tonometry, pachymetry, gonioscopy); we also performed the OCT analysis of the optic nerve head.

Results:

Glaucomatous changes in small optic discs may remain unnoticed untill there is a high degree of suspicion. The assesment of the optic disc size is important but often overlooked component of the diagnostic evaluation in glaucoma. There was a statistically strong positive correlation between the size of the optic disc diameter and cup diameter, larger optic disc diameter means greater cup diameter.

Conclusions:

Evaluation of the optic disc size and C/D ratio is an essential part in diagnostic procedure and management of glaucoma. More complexed long term study is needed to evaluate this complicated relations between optic disc diameter, C/D ratio, neuroretinal rim and other important clinical factors in emerging glaucoma disease.
