    Abstract

    Advancement of techniques for 3D reconstruction of the optic disc could lead to affordable objective detection of glaucoma. Applying computer stereo vision techniques to image pairs is particularly promising. More data, along with the stereo camera calibration parameters and ground truths required for validation, could aid development. This work presents a method to generate, using a virtual environment, synthetic stereo images of optic discs from images in the CORD database and obtain the corresponding stereo camera calibration parameters and ground truths. Our own reconstruction technique was tested using data created using this environment and quantitatively validated.
