© 2015 IEEE. Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) imaging is a robust diagnostic tool for visualizing pathology in the retina for glaucoma and other diseases. Bruch's Membrane Opening minimum rim width (BMO-MRW) of retina is a good measurable marker for distinguishing glaucoma and normal individuals. In this paper, we have proposed a novel automatic method to compute BMO-MRW from segmenting the Inner limiting membrane (ILM) and Bruch's Membrane Opening (BMO). Our technique uses the location tracking of three bench mark reference (TBMR) layers of the retina that reduce search space with improving accuracy. This also allows locating the boundary of the optic disc. The accuracy..
