    Echographic Measurements of the Retrobulbar Optic Nerve in Normal and Glaucomatous Eye. 

    Br J Ophthalmol 82:43-47, 1998.

        


    The authors used a new-generation B scanner to measure orbital optic nerve dimension in eyes with glaucoma and ocular hypertension.

        


    49 patients with glaucoma and 90 controls were studied. Five repeated echographic measues of the maximal interpial diameter and cross-sectional area of the orbital optic nerve were obtained in 1 eye of each participant on two occasions.

        


    Eyes with glaucoma were found to have reduced optic-nerve interpial diameter and cross-sectional areas, indicating nerve-fibre loss. This method would be of special value in differentiating normal from glaucomatous eyes when optic-disc morphometry is not possible because of opaque media.
