Fluorescein angiography of the optic nerve head in the elderly



Fluorescein angiography of the optic nerve head in the elderly



Metabolic Pediatric and Systemic Ophthalmology 12(1-3): 43-45



Interpretation of fluorescein angiography of the optic nerve head is somewhat difficult due to its peculiar vasculature. Three early phases can commonly be observed: 1) retrolaminar and prelaminar filling; 2) prelaminar filling; 3) superficial capillary filling. The authors describe the characteristics of the fluorescein angiography of norman optic nerve hed in the elderly. The interpretation of these signs is also discussed.
