Glaucoma, a common cause of blindness, can be detected in the early stages by studying topographic changes or cupping in the optic disc. The direct observation of fundus using an ophthalmoscope or the evaluation of the disc in fundus photographs has been primarily subjective , differing considerably from observer to observer. We have, therefore, developed an objective quantification technique -- the photogrammetric radial section method, which can quantitate not only cupping or swelling of the optic nerve, but also the growth of tumor or the development of posterior staphyloma in the myopic eye.
