Sample text

Indirect gonioscopy may be used with the patient in an upright position, with illumination and magnification provided by a slit lamp. A goniolens, which contains a mirror or mirrors, yields an inverted and slightly foreshortened image of the opposite angle. Although the image is inverted with an indirect goniolens, the right-left orientation of a horizontal mirror and the up-down orientation of a vertical mirror remain unchanged. The foreshortening, combined with the upright position of the patient, makes the angle appear a little shallower than it does with direct gonioscopy systems.

The Baltimore Eye Survey. Arch Ophthalmol. 1991;109(8):1090-1095. Methods other than Goldmann-type applanation tonometry With the recognition that the accuracy of applanation tonometry is dependent on many uncontrollable factors, there has been renewed interest in developing novel tonometric methods. In particular, new tonometers aim to lessen the potential inaccuracies in measurement that are secondary to differences in corneal thickness and rigidity. One such technology is the dynamic contour tonometer (DCT), a nonapplanation contact tonometer that may be more independent of corneal biomechanical properties and thickness than are older tonometers.

The connective tissue beams of the lamina cribrosa extend from this surrounding connective tissue border and are arranged in a series of parallel, stacked plates. The vascular anatomy of the anterior optic nerve and peripapillary region has been extensively studied (Fig 3-11). The arterial supply of the anterior optic nerve is derived entirely from branches of the ophthalmic artery via 1 to 5 posterior ciliary arteries. Typically, between 2 and 4 posterior ciliary arteries course anteriorly before dividing into approximately 10-20 short posterior ciliary arteries prior to entering the posterior globe.
