Purpose: To compare morphometric optic disc measurements obtained by optical coherence tomography and by scanning laser tomography.
Method: Thirty-three eyes of 22 Caucasian subjects (12 female and 8 male patients) were included. Mean age was 59.6 ± 16.8 years (mean ± SD), mean refractive error was 1.3 ± 2.4 D. All eyes underwent optic disc assessment by optical coherence tomography (OCT3, Carl Zeiss Ophthalmic Systems-Humphrey Division, Dublin, CA, USA). Six cross-sectional scans of the disc were obtained in differing meridians. Of the six scans, morphometric data of the optic disc were computed. Of all eyes, 3 scanning laser tomographic images were obtained (HRT II, Heidelberg Engineering, Dossenheim, Germany) and morphometric data of the optic disc were computed.
Results: Correlation coefficient (Pearson) for the two methods was R = 0.64 (P<0.0001) for the disc size, R = 0.60 (P<0.0001) for the cup size and R = 0.17 (P=0.33) for rim area. In 5 eyes displaying a small disc without cupping, the OCT3 measured a total cupping without rim. After correction for this artifact, correlation coefficient for cup area was R = 0.91 (P<0.0001) and for rim area R = 0.48 (P=0.004).
Conclusions: Morphometric optic disc measurements obtained by OCT3 correlate well with those of an established metho
