Abstract

Purpose. To determine whether a decrease in blood flow, measured by the Heidelberg retiinal flowmeter, can characterise a disc at risk and predict the occurrence of non-arteritic anterior ischaemic optic neuropathy (NAION). Methods. Blood flow, volume and velocity were measured in the optic nerve heads of 14 unaffected fellow eyes of patients with unilateral NAION, and compared with those of the affected eyes and of the eyes of 7 age-matched healthy controls. Results. The affected eyes were found to differ from the unaffected eyes in all three haemodynamic parameters. Flow (measured in arbitrary units) is the most important parameter to be taken into consideration. Blood flow was significantly lower in affected than in unaffected eyes (upper rim, p
