The gold standard for diagnosing glaucoma continues to be a detailed examination of the optic nerve head (ONH) and the retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL), as changes in these areas are usually followed by visual field loss.
The National Health and Medical Research Centre (NHMRC) has issued guidelines stating that health care providers involved in the screening and diagnosis of glaucoma should have the skills and equipment to examine the optic disc for typical glaucoma signs and optic disc rim haemorrhages.
In an effort to help optometrists comply with these guidelines, CFEH has prepared clinical guidelines for Assessing the Optic Nerve Head and Retinal Nerve Fibre Layer.
