increased optic cup/dic ratio

My 16 yr old daughter's optic cup/disc ratio increased from 0.3 to 0.65 during the last years.
I am very worried.
May I know what caused? Is she at high risk of having glaucoma?
We'll do more test nest week.
Thanks

C/D ratio are difficult to size even among experts. You should see an Eye MD ophthalmologist. She may need nothing more than a  photo and a yearly exam.
Find one at www.aao.org


IN NO CASE IN MY OPINION SHOULD SHE BE UNDER THE CARE OF OPTOMETRISTS WHO IN MY EXPERIENCE OVER-TEST
