Summary:

Glaucoma simplex is one of the basic causes of blindness. The main problem of glaucoma is its early recognition. It's well known that changes of anatomic structure of each organ are preceded by functional disorders, including disturbances of hemodynamics. Method of computer colorimetric analysis of disk of optic nerve (DON) was worked out for the purpose of objective evaluation of its chroma as one of hemodynamics detection criteria. Computer program for analysis of DON chroma with calculation of integrated index (color index) was developed. DON chroma was analyzed in the group of persons suspected of glaucoma, in the group of patients with glaucoma simplex and in healthy people. This method along with confocal scanning tomography of DON allows to evaluate objectively in dynamics its state in the presence of glaucoma simplex. These methods are necessary to be used in complex for diagnostics of early stages of glaucoma simplex.
