    Novel parameter may aid value in glaucoma diagnostics

    The cornerstone of glaucoma diagnosis and monitoring relies on an assessment of optic nerve structure and function. Advancements in OCT have allowed glaucoma care providers to evaluate optic nerve structure to an unparalleled degree. Principally, three OCT-derived parameter categories may be used for this purpose: retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), macular and optic nerve head. For good reason, more weight is typically placed on RNFL and macular parameters than on optic nerve head parameters. However, a novel optic nerve head parameter, Bruch’s membrane opening minimum rim width (BMO-MRW; Heidelberg Spectralis, Heidelberg Engineering), may also add value to one’s ...
