    Abstract

    In the detection of glaucoma, the second leading cause of blindness worldwide, the alteration of the optic disc's morphology is a key clinical indicator. The current gold standard test, stereo funduscopy using stereo fundus cameras, is subjective. Quantitative devices exist but are prohibitively expensive. Work carried out elsewhere has demonstrated quantitative results from stereo matching fundus camera images. Building on this idea, the slit lamp microscope (a mainstay of eye diagnostics, present in practically all ophthalmology and optometry practices) has the potential to be used as a quantitative device. This study explored the feasibility of uncalibrated 3D reconstructions of retinal structures of a phantom eye's fundus using a slit lamp.
