Abstract

Purpose : To evaluate variation of the ovality index of optic disc caused by horizontal duction.

Methods : Fundus photography was performed in 17 right eyes of 17 normal volunteers in central gaze and 5, 10, and 15 degrees of adduction and 5 degree of abduction. The ovality index was assessed by the maximal-to-minimal optic disc diameter ratio. We compared the ovality index between central gaze and each horizontal duction.

Results : The mean maximal optic disc diameter didn’t change during horizontal duction, while minimal optic disc diameter decreased during adduction and increased during abduction. The mean ovality index was 1.19 ± 0.13 in central gaze. The ovality index decreased during adduction (1.14 ± 0.14 in 5-degree, 1.12 ± 0.14 in 10-degree, and 1.13 ± 0.14 in 15-degress adduction) and increased during abduction (1.23 ± 0.16). Compared to ovality index in central gaze, there were significant changes of ovality index by horizontal duction. (p = 0.0001, 0.002, 0.002, 0.007, respectively)

Conclusions : The ovality index of the optic disc measured using fundus photograph is affected by horizontal duction.
