The reproducibility of digital photogrammetry of optic nervehead photographs taken with the Zeiss fundus camera with Allen stereoseparator, the Donaldson fundus camera, and the Zeiss fundus camera with twin-prism separator were evaluated. Reproducibility of the various quantitative factors was significantly better when the two types of simultantic cups.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare long-term intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering efficacy of 0.25% and 0.5% apraclonidine hydrochloride with 0.5% timolol maleate. DESIGN Multicenter, randomized, double-masked trial. Adult patients of either sex diagnosed as having open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension were enrolled following appropriate washout from all ocular(More)
The progression of field damage of 48 eyes with chronic simple glaucoma and a splinter hemorrhage on the disc was compared with that of 48 chronic simple glaucoma eyes without hemorrhage. The incidence of visual field progression was substantially higher among those with a hemorrhage. Similar visual field progression was substantially higher in 29 eyes with(More)
This report compares the reproducibility of analog and digital photogrammetry for topographical analysis of the optic cup. Ten simultaneous stereophotographs of each of three optic discs were taken with the Zeiss fundus camera plus a twin-prism stereoseparator. Digital processing produced photogrammetric contours of the optic cup and estimates of its(More)
The general medical and laboratory findings in 60 patients having a sector hemorrhage on the optic disc were compared with the findings in 102 patients with intraocular pressure elevation but without a disc hemorrhage. Of 22 parameters studied, systemic hypertension was the only abnormality which occurred significantly more frequently in the hemorrhage(More)
Simultaneous stereophotography achieves reproducible records of the optic cup topography. The clinical usefulness of sterophotographs remains unknown. This study compares the optic cup evaluation from contact lens examination with the evaluation from stereophotograph examination. Both methods of examination were used by each of 2 examiners to record their(More)
We describe a twin-prism stereoseparator for the Zeiss fundus camera which gives high-quality stereophotographs of the optic disc and simultaneously records both images on the same frame of film. The stereobase of photographs taken with this system ranges from 2.0 to 4.5 mm. It varies linearly with the entrance pupil which ranges from 4.0 to 6.5 mm. The(More)
