Methods in optic nerve disk digital planimetry

Methods in optic nerve disk digital planimetry

Ceska a Slovenska Oftalmologie 56(3): 170-175

The authors define the term planimetry in general and planimetry of the optic disc in particular and present a brief review of the history of planimetric evaluation of the optic disc. They describe a digital analyzer of their own design, the method of examination of the optic disc and further processing and recording of data. They define the indications and contraindications of examination, summarize the asset and limitations of the method used. The authors examined so far by digital planimetry 1575 optic discs of 856 patients.
