Glaucomatous Optic Neuropathy Evaluation Project

The GONE Project

  • Despite the advance of technology that assist in the examination of the optic disc and neural fibre layer, optic disc examination remains the primary and the most important skill in early detection of Glaucoma

  • Glaucoma is sometimes missed because of not seeing the key signs that increase our suspicion

  • The GONE Project aims to develop a system that will improve our understanding of the deficiencies in the current teaching of optic disc examination

  • The GONE Project also aims to understand the types of discs that are particularly difficult for clinicians to interpret
