Summary of "OCT-Detected Optic Nerve Head Neural Canal Direction, Obliqueness and Minimum Cross-Sectional Area in Healthy Eyes."

To assess anterior scleral canal opening (ASCO) offset relative to Bruch's membrane opening (BMO) (ASCO/BMO offset) so as to determine neural canal direction, obliqueness, and minimum cross-sectional area (NCMCA) in 362 healthy eyes.

Interdural course of the ophthalmic artery in the optic canal.

OBJECTIVEIn the current neurosurgical and anatomical literature, the intracanalicular segment of the ophthalmic artery (OphA) is usually described to be within the optic nerve dural sheath (ONDS), imp...

Decoding of Neural Data Using Cohomological Feature Extraction.

We introduce a novel data-driven approach to discover and decode features in the neural code coming from large population neural recordings with minimal assumptions, using cohomological feature extrac...

Pediatric optic nerve and optic nerve sheath diameter on magnetic resonance imaging.

The normal values of optic nerve diameter and optic nerve sheath diameter might be beneficial in defining an abnormality such as optic nerve hypoplasia, or enlarged subarachnoid space, reflecting the ...

Automatic Assessment of Biometric Parameters in Optic Nerve Head Area by "Zhongshan ONH Calculator (ZOC)".

To test the repeatability and reproducibility of the Zhongshan ONH Calculator (ZOC) software in terms of selected optic nerve head (ONH) parameters commonly used in clinical research of glaucoma.

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...

Effect of Oxygen Breathing on Flicker Induced Blood Flow Changes in the Optic Nerve Head

Background It has recently been shown that diffuse luminance flicker increases retinal and optic nerve head blood flow. This indicates that a neuro-vascular coupling between neural activit...

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

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.
