Normal optic disc size

Abstract. • We studied the size, shape, and configuration of connective tissue of the optic disc in normal eye-bank eyes from 60 adults. The mean vertical and horizontal disc diameters were 1.88 and 1.77 mm, respectively. These figures are larger than most estimates of disc diameter using clinical image analysis methods In the center of the normal optic disc, there is a funnel-shaped depression known as physiologic cupping. The cup is the portion of the disc that is central, lighter in color, and penetrated by the retinal vessels. The normal ratio of the cup diameter to disc diameter varies from 0.1 to 0.5 In normal eyes, the optic disc size shows a high interindividual variability. In the diseased eye, some optic nerve anomalies and diseases occur preferentially in small optic discs, and some are more common in large optic nerve heads. We conducted a study to determine whether glaucoma subtypes are c

The Normal Optic Disc Cup-to-Disc Ratio (C/D) interocular C/D > 0.2 ab out 1% of the time • Blacks have larger C/D than whites • Cup size may increase slightly with age Papilledema*: Definition Optic disc edema secondary to increased intracranial pressure edema * In the old days the optic disc was called the papilla. Measurements of disc rim area were therefore not independent of disc size in this group of normal subjects. A normal range of values for disc rim area can be predicted for an eye depending on the area of its optic disc. Sensitive predictions require further refinement based on the patient's age, race, and sex RESULTS: Adjusted for optic disc size and IOP, cup diameter increased 0.01 mm, cup-disc ratio increased 0.01, and neural rim width decreased 0.01 mm for every decade of age increase. The IOP-related increase in cup-disc ratio amounted to 9.5% of the mean per 10 mmHg, while the age related increase was 1.9% of the mean Clinically measure the size of the optic disc. You may use the 5-degree aperture of a Welch Allyn direct ophthalmoscope, which is approximately 1.5 millimeters in diameter. A normal optic nerve approximates 1.7 to 1.8 mm in its vertical diameter The normal optic nerve head diameter varies in size from 1.2 to 2.5mm. There is some inconsistency in the literature as to what cutoffs to use for a small or large disc, but in general a disc can be considered small if ≤ 1.2 mm and large if ≥ 1.8 mm. The key is to assess the C/D in conjunction with some knowledge of the disc size

The Size and Shape of the Optic Disc in Normal Human Eyes

Optic Nerve Anatomy The optic nerve (optic disc, optic disk, optic nerve head [ONH]) area is approximately 2.1-2.8 mm 2 in whites who are not highly myopic depending on the measurement method utilized. The optic nerve size changes in early life and is likely stable after age 10 It has been recognised for some time that there is a wide range of optic cup size in normal eyes, 14 15 38 42 47 with CDRs from 0.00 to 0.87 at the extremes. 2 Much of the variability in cup size results from the physiological relation between the size of the cup and the size of the optic disc How is optic nerve damage detected? The normal cup to disc ratio (the diameter of the cup divided by the diameter of the whole nerve head or disc) is about 1/3 or 0.3. There is some normal variation here, with some people having almost no cup (thus having 1/10 or 0.1), and others having 4/5ths or 0.8 as a cup to disc ratio

In normal eyes, the shape of the optic cup is horizontally oval as the vertical optic disc diameter is about 8% higher than the horizontal ones. 1-6,12,15,21,25-31. The average CDR is 0.4. However, CDR ratio in normal patients can range from 0.0 to 0.9 because of inter-individual variation in disc size and cup size Kee C, Koo H, Ji Y, Kim S.
