Stereoscopic photographing of the optic nerve disc is one of the most widely used imaging techniques. Photographing strategic offensive weapons is more complex and less commonly used than photographing the optic nerve disk. The method allows for a broader assessment of strategic offensive arms during the examination of the patient. Specific changes in the retina in glaucoma include focal and diffuse thinning of SNV.
How do stereoscopic photography
Stereo images are obtained by continuous (sequential) or synchronous photography techniques. With continuous stereoscopic photography, two consecutive images are captured by manually moving the camera joystick. In synchronized stereoscopic photography, instantaneous stereo images are captured with one-time processing and the production of a folded of two photographs into one image or two 35 mm slides, depending on the system used.
When a stereoscopic photograph is used
Stereoscopic photographing of the optic nerve disc should be used with the availability of the method every 1 or 2 years to assess the condition of patients with suspected glaucoma and glaucoma to control the progression of the disease.
In the method of stereoscopic photographing of the optic disc, there is no objective system for interpreting the state of the optic nerve.
How to photograph a layer of nerve fibers
SNV consists of axons of ganglion cells, neuroglia and astrocytes. Collected together axons of ganglion cells are directed to the optic nerve. It is best to define START under red, blue or green light. The wavelength of the blue and green ranges is well absorbed by retinal pigment epithelium and choroid, and the axon bundles reflect light and appear as silver lines.
When photographing a layer of nerve fibers
The study of strategic offensive weapons is used to differentiate the suspicion of glaucoma and damage developing with true glaucoma. Defects of START precede the appearance of changes in the disk of the optic nerve and the field of vision. Thus, when the state of START is correlated with the field of view, subjective features detected with automatic perimetry are objectively confirmed.
Factors that limit the possibility of assessing START photos include haze of the environment, for example, cataracts, poorly focused photographs and poor contrast due to insufficient pigmentation of the fundus.
