Relationship between retinal vessel diameter with both retinal nerve fibre layer thickness and optic nerve head parameters in middle-aged Caucasians: the Northern Finland Birth Cohort Eye study.

To study the normal relationship between retinal vessel diameter (RVD) with retinal nerve fibre layer (RNFL) thickness and optic nerve head (ONH) parameters in a cohort of middle-aged Caucasians.

Changes in the optic nerve head induced by horizontal eye movements.

To investigate the effect of eye movement on the optic nerve head (ONH) using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT), and to measure the degree of ONH changes.

Mechanical Deformation of Human Optic Nerve Head and Peripapillary Tissue in Response to Acute IOP Elevation.

To measure the deformation of the human optic nerve head (ONH) and peripapillary tissue (PPT) in response to acute intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation.

Optic nerve head width and retinal nerve fiber layer changes are good indexes for validating the successful induction of experimental anterior ischemic optic neuropathy.

Reproducible skills are essential for successful induction of a rat model of anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (rAION). We established an in vivo validation index by measuring the natural course of o...

Microvascular Changes in Peripapillary and Optic Nerve Head Tissues After Trabeculectomy in Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma.

To determine microvasculature changes in the deep optic nerve head (ONH) and peripapillary tissues after trabeculectomy, and to correlate these with changes in the lamina cribrosa (LC) curvature.

Amiloride Hydrochlorothiazide as Treatment of Acute Inflammation of the Optic Nerve

Following acute inflammation of the optic nerve region, as commonly seen in multiple sclerosis patients, the optic nerve often undergoes atrophy, thus representing permanent damage. Data f...

Spectral Domain OCT Imaging in Patients With Optic Nerve Head Drusen (Tuebingen SD-OCT IN OPTIC NERVE HEAD DRUSEN STUDY)

Optic nerve head Drusen are a mostly bilateral change of the optic nerve, eventually causing a slow, but progression loss of the visual fields. Characteristic are the crystalline deposits ...

The Lamina Cribrosa (LC) Changes in the Eyes After Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK)

The burden of LASIK surgery on optic nerve head (ONH) has been controversial. Until now, the change of retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness was used as the indicator of the study. In...

Role of Nitric Oxide in Optic Nerve Head Blood Flow Regulation During Isometric Exercise in Healthy Humans

Autoregulation is defined as the ability of a vascular bed to adapt its vascular resistance to changes in perfusion pressure. In the eye, several studies have reported that retinal blood f...

Effect of Cervical Collar on the Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter in Minor Head Trauma

This is randomized, controlled and blinded study was performed in minor head trauma patients. Two sonographers measured optic nerve sheath diameters (ONSD) of each subjects' eyes separatel...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Injuries to the optic nerve induced by a trauma to the face or head. These may occur with closed or penetrating injuries. Relatively minor compression of the superior aspect of orbit may also result in trauma to the optic nerve. Clinical manifestations may include visual loss, PAPILLEDEMA, and an afferent pupillary defect.

Atrophy of the optic disk which may be congenital or acquired. This condition indicates a deficiency in the number of nerve fibers which arise in the RETINA and converge to form the OPTIC DISK; OPTIC NERVE; OPTIC CHIASM; and optic tracts. GLAUCOMA; ISCHEMIA; inflammation, a chronic elevation of intracranial pressure, toxins, optic nerve compression, and inherited conditions (see OPTIC ATROPHIES, HEREDITARY) are relatively common causes of this condition.

Conditions which produce injury or dysfunction of the second cranial or optic nerve, which is generally considered a component of the central nervous system. Damage to optic nerve fibers may occur at or near their origin in the retina, at the optic disk, or in the nerve, optic chiasm, optic tract, or lateral geniculate nuclei. Clinical manifestations may include decreased visual acuity and contrast sensitivity, impaired color vision, and an afferent pupillary defect.

Benign and malignant neoplasms that arise from the optic nerve or its sheath. OPTIC NERVE GLIOMA is the most common histologic type. Optic nerve neoplasms tend to cause unilateral visual loss and an afferent pupillary defect and may spread via neural pathways to the brain.

The 2nd cranial nerve. The optic nerve conveys visual information from the retina to the brain. The nerve carries the axons of the retinal ganglion cells which sort at the optic chiasm and continue via the optic tracts to the brain. The largest projection is to the lateral geniculate nuclei; other important targets include the superior colliculi and the suprachiasmatic nuclei. Though known as the second cranial nerve, it is considered part of the central nervous system.
