Macrodiscs with physiologic macrocups and elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) are frequently suspicious for glaucoma. Patients with an elevated c/d ratio and an IOP of more than 21 mmHg are often treated for glaucoma. We investigated a possible relationship between macrodiscs, IOP and central corneal thickness. Using the Erlangen glaucoma registry, 341 out of 1,096 consecutive patients with unremarkable and repeated visual field (Octopus 500, G1-3, MD<2.1) were selected. Most of these patients… CONTINUE READING
