Abstract

Aim-To assess serial, simultaneous stereo optic disc images by four methods for glaucomatous progression.Methods-Using varying techniques, two ophthalmologists assessed serial optic disc images of 52 eyes from 27 patients with a mean duration between images of 18 months. The neuroretinal rim width was qualitatively assessed by four assessment methods and compared with quantitative rim measurements made using PC based software.Results-The highest sensitivity of 83% was achieved using computerised stereo chronoscopy.Conclusion-Stereo chronoscopy improved the detection of subtle optic disc changes when compared with simpler assessment techniques.
