Imaging helps monitor structural damage over time

April 15, 2004

Dorado, Puerto Rico-New imaging technologies for glaucoma allow physicians an objective, reproducible, and more user-friendly approach to documenting structural damage to the optic nerve head and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL). This is particularly important because, in the majority of glaucoma patients, structural damage occurs before standard visual field loss, noted David S. Greenfield, MD.
