Abstract

Structural and functional tests are indispensable for determining the extent of glaucomatous damage, and the stage of glaucoma in individual eyes. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the current gold standard for structural testing in glaucoma. We present cases with varying severity of glaucomatous damage in this chapter. The aim is to familiarize the reader with a step-by-step approach for diagnosing and staging glaucoma by evaluating the OCT and visual field printouts.
