Optic disc stereo-photography: Does it have a role in the OCT era?

July 15, 2018

Stereoscopic photographs are a useful tool in the detection of glaucoma, however, the difficulty in obtaining them has seen them underused in favour of optical coherence tomography (OCT). A new device is attempting to redress this balance, enabling stereo-photography to be used alongside OCT for optimal practice.

The importance of pattern electroretinography in detecting early-stage glaucoma

June 12, 2018

As an objective measure of the function of retinal ganglion cells, pattern electroretinography (PERG) testing reveals subclinical optic nerve changes that may be critical for deciding when to start therapy to avoid vision loss from glaucoma progression.

A paradigm for the treatment of ocular hypertension in glaucoma suspects

April 16, 2018

The combined clinical use of pattern electroretinography for the detection of early glaucoma indicators and selective laser trabeculoplasty for intervention may help realise the potential of early detection and treatment.
