Abstract
Scanning laser polarimetry is the method of evaluating the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer. Different pathologies damage retinal fibers, but in glaucoma the damage is present very often before other symptoms reveal. As the earliest possible diagnosis of glaucoma is essential for treatment results, scanning laser polarimetry offers a very useful diagnostic tool for ophthalmology. This paper describes the principles of the method and discusses the results obtained in 50 glaucomatous eyes in conjunction with 2- and 3-D topographical parameters of the optic disc.
