Abstract

It is proposed that individuals who are susceptible to glaucomatous damage are those with relatively weak mechanical support at the optic nerve head. A noninvasive method of measuring tissue compliance is described. Preliminary results, obtained in <i>vitro</i> and <i>in vivo</i>, demonstrate the feasibility of the method.
