Abstract

PURPOSE/METHODS: To examine the optic disk in infants and young children with glaucoma after the administration of anesthesia, a lens designed for vitrectomy surgery was used to obtain magnified stereoscopic images of the optic disk. RESULT/CONCLUSIONS: Excellent visualization of the optic disk was obtained with our method. Comparison of optic disk appearance is facilitated by using an inexpensive lens designed for vitrectomy surgery.
