Since glaucomatous discs tend to present with thinning and/or notching of the inferior and/or superior disc rims, they will not follow the ISNT rule. A suspicious optic disc in a patient with normal IOP readings and normal automated perimetry (white-on-white) Clinical pearl: Notching does not occur commonly on the temporal or nasal aspect of the disc. Temporal thinning of the disc is most commonly an anomaly of disc insertion and not glaucoma. The term temporal thinning, in the absence of other glaucomatous disc changes, is meaningless Moreover, what is notching of optic disc? The axons of these ganglion cells occupy the central part of inferior and superior parts of the disc respectively. Since these are damaged in the initial stages, the axons central part of inferior and superior disc are lost leading to notch. Beside above, what is suspicious glaucoma
Optic nerve cupping progresses as the cup becomes larger in comparison to the optic disc. Both people with and without optic nerve damage have optic nerve cupping, although those with glaucoma tend to have a greater cup-to-disc ratio. A cup to disc ratio greater than six-tenths is generally considered to be suspicious for glaucoma Tilted discs are fairly common, especially in cases of high myopia. They are usually bilateral (80%). The superotemporal aspect of the optic nerve is typically elevated, which can mimic optic nerve edema. There can be situs inversus of the retinal vessels (increased branching of the retinal vessels nasally) Cupping is the result of changes in the optic nerve related to optic nerve degeneration, where there is a backward bowing of the central part of the disc. When your optic disc is seen in three dimensions, the cupping can be very obvious to your eye doctor
Notching of the neuroretinal rim is a sign that a focal area of loss occurred within the rim tissue. Notching most commonly occurs at the inferior temporal or superior temporal aspect of the disc and often is associated with corresponding nerve fiber layer defects.4 Optic nerve rim notching is believed to be secondary to ischemia Focal notching, preservation of disc color, retinal nerve fiber layer defects, and cupping of disc strongly favors glaucomatous optic neuropathy Surrounding retinal examination is mandatory to look for findings like arteriolar attenuation or sheathing, bony spicules, retinal pigment epithelial mottling, choroiditis patches or extensive PRP marks
Roles of Glaucomatous Optic Disc Diagnosis. Primary open angle glaucoma is a common eye disease characterized by loss of the axons of the retinal ganglion cells leading to progressive loss of vision. The site of damage to the axons is at the level of the lamina cribrosa in the optic nerve head. The mechanism of axonal loss is unknown but. . It can become a full-thickness notch with complete abscence of the rim. It may be very deep and it may be associated with peripapillary atrophy. Progression will cause this area to enlarge
The presence of notching or the complete obliteration of the neuroretinal rim is highly specific to glaucoma. 13,14 Another highly specific sign of glaucomatous cupping is the presence of a hemorrhage on the optic disc. VF Correlation . The VF defects associated with glaucoma show a high degree of correlation with the appearance of the optic disc 'notch') to circumferential thinning of the entire neuroretinal rim. DISPLACEMENT OF THE RETINAL VESSELS Distinction was made between a gradual curve of a retinal vessel as it passed over the surface of the optic disc and a sharp 'kinking' or change in the vessel's direction either in the same plane as the disc surface or at an angle to it notch for optic disc accommodation and the other side ( −X p direction) has suture lugs for a suture on the surface of the eye [Figs. 1(b) -1(c)]. Seed(s) in the notch side are removed to reduce optic disc dose. Table 1 shows seed position number(s) removed from standard COMS plaque Consequently, the cup enlarges. The amount of cupping is often described by the eye doctor as the cup-to-disc ratio (C/D ratio). Figure 1-5. The optic nerve is divided into tenths and the cup is compared to the entire optic nerve (optic disc) to obtain the cup-to-disc ratio. This C/D ratio here is 0.4 Beta zone peripapillary atrophy was seen in 78 eyes. Another important parameter of the optic disc is notching. In 53 eyes notching was seen. Out of these, 35 eyes show superior notching, of which 33 eyes (94.3%) correlated with inferior field defects. 18 eyes show inferior notching, and all of them showed superior field defect
There is a physiological relationship between optic disc size and cup size, so that large optic discs have large cups, and small discs should have small, or absent, cups. 8 The neuroretinal rim is the tissue in between the outer edge of the cup and the optic disc margin. Normally, circumlinear blood vessels rest on the neuroretinal rim tissue So at the optic nerve, if you have loss of the optic disc tissue, you lose the nerve fiber layer. You lose that axon as it goes back to the ganglion cell. There's retrograde loss. And so if the optic disc is losing those axons, all over the place, you get generalized cupping, and you also get generalized loss of the nerve fiber layer Optic Disc Size Measurement of optic disc size with biomicroscopy Volk lens Measure length of slit beam Avg vertical diameter: 1.8 mm Correction factors Volk 60D -x 1.0 Volk 78D -x 1.1 Volk 90D -x 1.3 Avg horizontal diameter: 1.7 mm Optic Disc Size Large Disc Size: Megalopapilla= ≥ 2.5 mm2 Other Key Signs: Baring of Vessel Drance Hemorrhag Valid for Submission.

Optic disc. Optic disc changes seen on clinical examination of patients with POAG include: High cup:disc ratio (Figures 1 and 2) Cup:disc ratio asymmetry between eyes (usually considered significant if greater than 0.2) Vertical elongation of cup; Focal neuro-retinal rim thinning or notching (Figure 1) Vessel bayoneting (Figure 2 1) increased cup-to-disc ratio (i.e. the ratio of the optic cup in the central optic disc to the margin of the optic disc), 2) notching of the neuroretinal rim (focal loss of the margin of the optic disc margin), 3) symmetry of optic disc cupping, and 4) loss of retinal nerve ﬁber layer.

We recommend development of a standard photographic classification of disc rim notching
Notching (focal loss of ganglion cell axons) usually occurs at what locations? Superior temporal + inferior temporal poles of ONH (most often inferior pole) What is an acquired pit of the optic nerve and localized notching in the neuroretinal rim was noted in 188 (94%) and 86 (43%) patients, respectively. Optic disc hemorrhage, Optic disc pallor and Optic disc atrophy was seen in 80 (40%), 127 (63.5%) and 15 (7.5%) cases, respectively. Mean VDD was 1.76mm in both right and left eyes. Mean vertical and hori of the optic disc is notching. In 53 eyes notching was seen. Out of these, 35 eyes show superior notching, of which 33 eyes (94.3%) correlated with inferior field defects. 18 eyes show inferior notching, and all of them showed superior field defect. Inferio
The optic disc segmentation is the primary step for automatic processing of the fundus image, hence a considerable amount of research work is available. The earliest attempt of optic disc segmentation was made by shape based template matching in which the disc is modeled as either circular [7-9] or elliptical . This method was unable to.

The Kestenbaum index is the number of capillaries counted on the optic disc, which normally is around 10. Less than 6 capillaries indicates optic atrophy; more than 12 suggests disc hyperaemia. Optic Atrophy Major Review Dept. of Neuro Ophthalmology, Sankara Netralaya, Chenna Disc hemorrhages usually occur at the border of the optic disc in the neurofiber layer, although they may also occur inside or just outside the disc edge. They're sometimes called splinter hemorrhages, because they look like splinters running parallel to the nerve fibers in the nerve fiber layer, or Drance hemorrhages, after Steven Drance, MD.
Optic disc: cupping: generalised thinning, focal narrowing or notching of neuroretinal rim; cupping should be considered in relation to disc size; CD ratio >0.6 or R:L asymmetry ≥ 0.2 suspicious of glaucoma; disc margin haemorrhage is an important prognostic sign but not necessarily diagnostic of glaucoma (more common in Normal Tension Glaucoma The Optic Disc Assessment Project found that differentiating glaucoma from genetic optic neuropathies based on disc assessment alone is difficult, concluding that a careful history and clinical examination are required for accurate diagnosis . Differentiating glaucomatous from nonglaucomatous optic disc cupping is the focus of this review Optic disc thinning and cupping. Optic disc thinning refers to examining the neuroretinal rim (NRR) and observing abnormal measures of the inferior, superior, nasal and temporal rims. 2 In order to evaluate the NRR, the ISNT rule can be helpful for remembering the order of thickest to thinnest rims in a healthy disc: I: Inferior rim, thickes
Absence of glaucomatous optic neuropathy was defined as a vertical cup-disc asymmetry between eyes of less than 0.2, a cup-disc ratio of 0.6 or less, and an intact neuroretinal rim without notching or excavation The optic nerve is a bundle of more than 1 million nerve fibers. Nerve signals travel along the optic nerve from each eye and send visual information to the brain. Damage along the optic nerve pathway causes specific patterns of vision loss. The three types of vision loss caused by optic nerve disorders are
Ophthalmoscopy, direct or indirect. Tomography is newer and better way to judge ,but is expensive and not all offices have one. Direct ophthalmoscopy is when the DR, gets real close holding a flashlight looking instrument to look in. Indirect the. optic disc into four arcades (superonasal, superotemporal, inferonasal, inferotemporal vessels). The macula is the portion of the retina surrounded by the temporal vessels. The fovea is the center of the macula. Despite its small size, the fovea is responsible for most of our visual acuity. Beyond the macula, the retina is broken down int Left: Normal optic disc. Vertical cup/disc ratio = 0.2. Middle: Moderate glaucoma (left eye). Vertical cup/disc ratio = 0.7 with a notch at 1 o'clock. The curve of the vein at 5 o'clock suggests a reduced rim thickness. There is a wedge defect in the retinal nerve fibre layer between 12 and 2 o'clock. There is moderate nasal displacement. Focal notching of the neuroretinal rim with a corresponding VF defect, which threatens fixation early in the disease, is described as FE type of glaucoma. 9, 30, 31 Earlier age of onset, female gender, occurrence of disc hemorrhage, and primary vascular dysregulation syndromes (vasospasm, migraine, nocturnal hypotension, Raynaud phenomenon) are. DH has been associated with notching, progressive changes in the optic disc rim, localized RNFL defects, and enlargement of localized RNFL defects.[7-10] Normal-tension glaucoma (NTG) eyes with DH have a thinner lamina cribrosa. These findings suggest that structural changes at the lamina cribrosa, optic disc, or RNFL may contribute to.

The optic disc is the area where specific nerve fibres exit the retina to form the optic nerve. It is also where blood vessels enter the eye. The optic disc is usually round or oval in shape and is made up of two main parts: the outer rim and the cup. The outer rim tends to be orange or pink in colour and contains the nerve fibres changes in the optic nerve head (ONH), careful examination of the retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) and visual field test. Optic nerve head Classic glaucomatous signs at the ONH include thinning or notching of the neuroretinal rim (NRR), asymmetry of NRR, excavation and enlarged cup to disc ratio over a period of time, Drance Dr Adrian S Bruc A.

Glaucoma is defined as heterogeneous group of disorders which manifests as chronic progressive optic neuropathy characterized by specific morphological changes at optic nerve head and retinal nerve fibre layer with resultant loss of retinal ganglion cells which results in loss of visual fields
Notching, or loss of fibers in one area of the rim of the optic nerve head, can indicate glaucoma in eyes that may not yet have a large cup-to-disc ratio. Bleeding Visible signs of bleeding on the nerve head in the form of small splinter-like hemorrhages rarely occur in non-glaucomatous eyes referable GON were the presence of vertical cup-to-disc ratio ≥ 0.7, neuroretinal rim notching, retinal nerve fiber layer d efect, and bared circumlinear vessels. Co n c l u s i o n s : A DL algorithm trained on fundus images alone can detect referable GON with higher sensitivity and comparable specificity to eye care providers Early optic nerve head changes may produce a right-left eye asymmetry. An inter-ocular difference in the C/D ratio of ≥ 0.2 is suspicious for glaucoma.

Documented change in the C/D ratio over time is considered a. optic disc pit does not carry any of these systemic associations. In glaucoma evalua-tion, the term 'acquired optic disc pit' has been used to describe deep and total focal notching of the neuroretinal rim,9 partic-ularly in normal tension glaucoma.4 In glaucoma suspects, where the congenital nature of an optic disc pit is equivocal, a The CRA trunk is more commonly nasal-superior and notching tends to occur opposite in the inferior-temporal area Term Why does nerve fiber loss due to glaucoma require a evaluation rim to disk and not just cup to disc ratios
The most obvious presentation of a coloboma is as a notch or a gap in some part of the eye, whether that be the iris, the retina, the choroid, or the optic nerve. lens, retina and optic disc In the moderate myopic group optic disc normal appearance was seen in 53.3% myopic fundus picture 7 in 30% and glaucomatous optic nerve head changes in 16.6 %. 8. In the high myopic group 41.6% was found to have glaucomatous optic nerve head change and the most commonly observed optic nerve head changes was the asymmetry of the optic disc cup.
The optic disc is typically round or oval, with a cup in the center. Between the cup and disc margin is the neural rim. Notation of the cup-to-disc ratio is critical, as is the contour of the neural rim. Other signs of damage from glaucoma include hemorrhages near the optic nerve and notching of the neural rim Disc Area range 1.06 - 3.38 mm2 (ave 1.83 mm2) Small - disc area < 1.63 mm2 Medium - disc area 1.63-1.97 mm2 Large - disc area > 1.97 mm2 Larger Discs will have larger c/d ratios Larger Discs generally have greater neuro rim tissue The current software does match disc size for optic nerve parameters but no Vertical cup-to-disc ratio (VCDR), the presence of neuroretinal rim notching, number of clock hours of beta zone parapapillary atrophy (ßPPA), and eye with greater ßPPA width were determined from photographs by 2 masked expert examiners. RESULTS. We identified and analyzed 49 patients with photographically documented unilateral DH The recurring splinter-shaped optic disc hemorrhages in the right eye and neuroretinal rim notching in the left eye corresponding to a segmental defect in the retinal nerve fiber layer and a deep Bjerrum scotoma are characteristics of the focal type of normal-pressure glaucoma. 1 Loss of neuroretinal rim and increase in the β zone of.
The optic nerve, also known as cranial nerve II, or simply as CN II, is a paired cranial nerve that transmits visual information from the retina to the brain.In humans, the optic nerve is derived from optic stalks during the seventh week of development and is composed of retinal ganglion cell axons and glial cells; it extends from the optic disc to the optic chiasma and continues as the optic. So there are five R's of any optic disc evaluation. This first we measure the scleral ring. Then comes the neural retinal rim. Then comes the retinal nerve fibre layer. Then the retinal or the optic disc hemorrhages and then the region of perippillary attrophy. Now many of you all won't understand what these terms are and what they look like
