Examination of the Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer

The retinal nerve fibers have a characteristic arrangement, which explains the typical visual field defects that occur in primary open angle glaucoma. In addition to the early progressive optic nerve and visual field defects, arc-shaped defects also occur in the nerve fiber layer. These defects may be observed in light with red components (Fig. 10.13).
