Abstract

PURPOSE: Interindividual variance in optic nerve head (ONH) position, axial length, and location of the temporal raphe suggest that customizing mapping between visual field locations and ONH sectors for individuals may be clinically useful. Herein we quantify the proportion of the population predicted to have structure-function mappings that markedly deviate from "average," and thus would benefit from customized mapping. DESIGN: Database study and case report. PARTICIPANTS: Population database of 2836 eyes from the Beijing Eye Study and a single case report of an individual with primary open-angle glaucoma. METHODS: Using the morphometric fundus data of the Beijing Eye Study for 2836 eyes an..
