Optic disc correlations were evaluated in normal eyes by means of computer-aided morphometry. Two hundred and thirty-five subjects (144 women and 91 men) entered the study. One eye per patient was randomly chosen for statistical analysis. Disc area (P < 0.05) and axial length (P < 0.0001) were statistically different between sexes. There was a correlation between axial length and both disc area (r for females = 0.55, P < 0.00001; r for males = 0.35, P < 0.0007) and refraction (r for females = 0… CONTINUE READING
