Purpose:To evaluate the reproducibility and interexaminer consistency in analyzing the optic disc parameters using a newly fundus stereoscopic camera, and their correlation with parameters of the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph II (HRT II) was also examined. Methods:This study examined 53 eyes of 53 healthy volunteers (mean age, 21.8 y). Fifty-five eyes of 55 glaucoma patients (mean age, 59.3 y) were also involved. A Nonmyd WX retinal camera was used for stereoscopic fundus imaging. The diagnostic… Expand
Stereoscopic Analysis of Optic Nerve Head Parameters in Primary Open Angle Glaucoma: The Glaucoma Stereo Analysis Study
A stereo fundus camera was used to assess various morphological parameters of the optic nerve head (ONH) in glaucoma patients and investigated the relationships between these parameters and patient characteristics, indicating that rim thinning manifested more often as an inferior lesion than a superior lesion.

The agreement between optical coherence tomography angiography and non-mydriatic retinal camera in estimating the optic nerve head parameters and relations with the peripapillary vessel density in primary open-angle glaucoma
The associations between the VD and ONH parameters proved once again the importance of the optic nerve head parameters in terms of the management of glaucoma patients. Expand
Comparisons between retinal vessel calibers and various optic disc morphologic parameters with different optic disc appearances: The Glaucoma Stereo Analysis Study
The associations between retinal vessel caliber and ONH morphologic parameters vary among different optic disc appearances, suggesting different effects of vascular changes in each disc type. Expand
Differentiation of glaucomatous optic discs with different appearances using optic disc topography parameters: The Glaucoma Stereo Analysis Study
Using six optic disc topographic parameters obtained by stereo fundus camera, the GSAS classification formulas predicted and quantified each component of different optic disc appearances in each eye and provided a novel parameter to describe glaucomatous optic disc characteristics. Expand
Clinically, glaucoma patients show characteristic optic nerve head (ONH) and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) changes that include thinning of the neuroretinal rim, increased cup-to-disk ratio, peripapillary atrophy and attenuated RNFL (Figure 1). Expand
Validation of formula‐predicted glaucomatous optic disc appearances: the Glaucoma Stereo Analysis Study
A formula for predicting different appearances of glaucomatous optic discs was established, although the formula lacked validation in an independent dataset, but was validated in another testing dataset in this study. Expand
The Current Role of Orthoptists: A Systematic Review
The tasks performed by orthoptists, the types of patients they manage, their work settings, the professionals they work with, and the professionalsthey receive referrals from and refer to are determined to determine the urgent need for research into this area. Expand
Validity and reliability of eye healthcare professionals in the assessment of glaucoma – a systematic review
To explore the validity and reliability of eye healthcare professionals with different levels of training in diagnosing and/or identifying glaucomatous progression, a large number of them have been found to be reliable. Expand
Correction: Stereoscopic Analysis of Optic Nerve Head Parameters in Primary Open Angle Glaucoma: The Glaucoma Stereo Analysis Study
Stereoscopic analysis of Optic Nerve Head Parameters in Primary Open Angle Glaucoma patients and investigated the relationships between these parameters and patient characteristics established a database of ONH parameters, which may facilitate future studies of glaucomatous changes in ONH morphology.

Comparison of Quantitative Imaging Devices and Subjective Optic Nerve Head Assessment by General Ophthalmologists to Differentiate Normal From Glaucomatous Eyes
Diagnostic ability of all imaging techniques showed better performance than subjective assessment of the ONH by general ophthalmologists, but not by a glaucoma expert. Expand
Discrimination between glaucomatous and nonglaucomatous eyes using quantitative imaging devices and subjective optic nerve head assessment.
A combination of subjective ONH evaluation with RNFL parameters provides additive information, may have clinical impact, and deserves to be considered in the design of future studies comparing objective techniques with subjective evaluation by general eye care providers. Expand
A Pilot Study to Detect Glaucoma With Confocal Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscopy Compared With Nonmydriatic Stereoscopic Photography in a Community Health Screening
Although HRT II did not detect glaucoma as well as optic nerve stereophotographs in this Japanese population, it may play a role in community health screening. Expand
[Stereometric parameters of the optic disc. Comparison between a simultaneous non-mydriatic stereoscopic fundus camera (KOWA WX 3D) and the Heidelberg scanning laser ophthalmoscope (HRT IIII)].
Compared the methods by assessing the differences in the topographic parameters obtained by the HRT and the Kowa nonmyd WX 3D (2D/3D non-mydriatic retinal camera, Kowa, Japan) in a representative sample to compare the methods. Expand
Diagnostic Accuracy of the Moorfields Regression Analysis Using the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph in Glaucoma Patients with Visual Field Defects
Although correlations of moderate strength were found between rim area, rim volume, mean RNFL thickness, RNFL cross-sectional area, and visual field index MD, great interindividual variation limits the prediction of one parameter from the other. Expand
Comparison of Scanning Laser Polarimetry and Optical Coherence Tomography in Preperimetric Glaucoma
Both GDx VCC and Stratus OCT instruments had similar correlations at each clock hour segment, and both were useful in the early detection of patients with preperimetric glaucoma. Expand
Comparison of automated analysis of Cirrus HD OCT spectral-domain optical coherence tomography with stereo photographs of the optic disc.
Designation of the cup and optic disc boundaries by an automated analysis of SD OCT was within the range of variable designations by different readers from color stereoscopic photographs, but use of different landmarks typically made the optic disc size somewhat smaller in the automated analysis.

Reproducibility of the optic nerve head topography with a new laser tomographic scanning device.
The Heidelberg retina tomograph enables fast and reliable measurement of the optic disc topography and therefore may allow exact follow-up of patients. Expand
Agreement and accuracy of non-expert ophthalmologists in assessing glaucomatous changes in serial stereo optic disc photographs.
The interobserver agreement of non-expert ophthalmologists in detecting glaucomatous optic disc changes using serial stereophotos was significantly lower than that of experts, which was moderate, and after a training session, the interob server agreement and the accuracy of the non-experts showed a small but statistically significant improvement.
