Abstract

PURPOSE: To determine the cup and disc areas using computer-aided imaging.
METHODOLOGY: Case-control study using the computer-aided imaging as a screening test in a given population.
RESULTS: There is a wide variability in cup and disc areas among glaucoma suspects and normal.
CONCLUSION: C:D alone has a poor predictive value for diagnosing glaucoma. Optic disc size with C:D is just as sensitive and specific in screening for glaucoma. Cup and disc areas are positively correlated for normal and glaucoma suspects.
