1. Characterization of Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer in Nonglaucomatous Eyes With Tilted Discs

    Clinical assessment of the optic disc and nerve fiber layer (NFL) is an important method to diagnose and monitor the progress of glaucomatous optic neuropathy but is often difficult in eyes with tilted discs.1-3 Clinically, there are 2 orientations of tilting of the optic disc: temporal and inferior1 (Figure 1). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) demonstrates an acceptable diagnostic ability for glaucoma by comparing an individual patient's NFL thickness profile with those in a normative database.4-6 The purpose of this study is to characterize the NFL of nonglaucomatous eyes with tilted discs using OCT.
