Speaker Session Topic
Structural imaging is a powerful tool that has become a standard of care in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma. Analysis of the retinal nerve fiber layer, optic nerve and retinal ganglion cell layer can help to guide therapy decisions in glaucoma. While imaging can yield more information than or confirm what is seen on clinical exam, it should only be viewed as a tool. Like any tool, artifacts can occur that may provide imperfect information about the structure of the retina and optic nerve. The data that these devices provide should be evaluated in the context of other structural and functional findings, as well as clinical information obtained during the follow-up exam.
