Patients who are at risk for developing glaucoma or those already being treated for glaucoma need careful monitoring to detect the onset and follow the progression of optic nerve injury. Accurate examination of the optic nerve head is crucial for diagnosing and following patients who have or are suspected of having glaucoma. The Heidelberg Retina Tomograph II represents one of several emerging optic nerve imaging technologies. The usefulness of the HRT II in clinical practice has been previously described in detail1 and will be further illustrated in this article by the following three clinical cases, which describe patients with asymmetric discs, early glaucoma and focal glaucoma respectively.
