OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship between in vivo measurements of optic disc topography and histomorphometric measurements of optic nerve fiber number in glaucoma. METHODS Both eyes of 10 monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) with laser-induced glaucoma in the right eye were studied. Optic disc topography was measured in vivo with a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope. Histomorphometry was performed on optic nerve cross sections using bright-field microscopy with camera lucida. Nerve fiber… CONTINUE READING
