The introduction of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has revolutionized ophthalmology through the ability to non-invasively image the retina in vivo. Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Despite major advances in imaging techniques, the pathogenesis of glaucoma remains poorly understood at present. The lamina cribrosa (LC) is the presumed site of axonal injury in glaucoma. Its thinning and deformation have been suggested to contribute to glaucoma development and… CONTINUE READING
