PURPOSE To investigate the effects of acute elevations in intraocular pressure (IOP) on the cup, prelaminar, and lamina cribrosa regions of the porcine optic nerve head (ONH). METHODS Ex vivo imaging of 10 porcine ONHs was performed using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (OCT). The IOP was manipulated with a pressure head and measured with a pressure transducer. Reference scans were taken at 0 mm Hg, before further scanning was performed at 7-mm Hg steps, up to 49 mm Hg… CONTINUE READING
