The retinal ganglion axons are an important part of the visual system, which can be directly observed by fundus camera. The layer they form together inside the retina is the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL). This paper describes results of a texture RNFL analysis in color fundus photographs and compares these results with quantitative measurement of RNFL(More)
The authors describe the advantage of subjective examination of the nerve fiber layer in everyday outpatient praxis of the ophthalmologist. The objective examination of the nerve fiber layer is performed on specialized clinics by means of expensive instruments as are OCT, GDX or HRT. Every ophthalmologist may analyze the retinal nerve fiber layer(More)
The authors describe the procedure how to take pictures of the retinal nerve fiber layer with the fundus camera CANON CF-60UV connected to the digital camera EOS 20D. They attach practical instructions how to modify taken digital pictures with the Photoshop CS2 software, to make the nerve fiber layer and its losses more visible. They present modified(More)
The topic of the article is to inform about the analysis of the nerve fiber layer in color digital images of the retina. The study group consists of 11 eyes (9 patients) with marked focal losses in the nerve fiber layer of the retina. The control group consists of 14 eyes (7 patients). The basic statistical parameters, which may distinguish the loss in the(More)
Authors describe ocular and neurological findings in a 68 years old female patient with the intracranial hypertension (pseudotumor cerebri). For developing edema of the optic nerve head on the fundus (oedema papillae), accompanied with lowered visual acuity and visual field defects, an urgent surgical treatment was indicated--the lumboperitoneal shunt was(More)
The intent of this paper is to provide a systems-based analysis of the methods used to evaluate optic nerve cupping, identify potential flaws in these systems, and propose alternatives better to assess this anatomic quantity. Estimation of optic nerve cupping requires an analytic understanding of both the psychophysical as well as the mathematical bases(More)
Images of ocular fundus are routinely utilized in ophthalmology. Since an examination using fundus camera is relatively fast and cheap procedure, it can be used as a proper diagnostic tool for screening of retinal diseases such as the glaucoma. One of the glaucoma symptoms is progressive atrophy of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) resulting in(More)
