Optic Disc Asymmetry: A Sign of Ocular Hypertension

Optic Disc Asymmetry: A Sign of Ocular Hypertension Abstract Asymmetrical cupping of the optic disc was found in 5.6% of normal individuals, in 30% of a group with ocular hypertension without field defect, and in 36% of those with established chronic open-angle glaucoma and field loss. Disc asymmetry was also instrumental in leading to the diagnosis of subacute angle-closure glaucoma and of chronic vascular insufficiency of the optic nerve. The search for disc asymmetry is an essential part of glaucoma screening. References 1. Kronfeld PC: Symposium on Glaucoma: Transactions of the New Orleans Academy of Ophthalmology .

Abstract

Abstract Asymmetrical cupping of the optic disc was found in 5.6% of normal individuals, in 30% of a group with ocular hypertension without field defect, and in 36% of those with established chronic open-angle glaucoma and field loss. Disc asymmetry was also instrumental in leading to the diagnosis of subacute angle-closure glaucoma and of chronic vascular insufficiency of the optic nerve. The search for disc asymmetry is an essential part of glaucoma screening. References 1. Kronfeld PC: Symposium on Glaucoma: Transactions of the New Orleans Academy of Ophthalmology .
