The optic disc in glaucoma: pathogenetic correlation of five patterns of cupping in chronic open-angle glaucoma



The optic disc in glaucoma: pathogenetic correlation of five patterns of cupping in chronic open-angle glaucoma



Transactions. Section on Ophthalmology. American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology 81(2): 217-223



Visible alteration of the optic nerve head is a hallmark of glaucoma. Five patterns in which this alteration becomes manifest have been discussed. These different patterns of cupping suggest different pathogenetic mechanisms, both mechanical and vascular.
