Careful examination and monitoring of optic nerve head changes is essential in the treatment of patients with glaucoma. This often results in accumulation of numerous photographs and required appropriate storage space. A simple, inexpensive, and efficient means of storing and viewing stereoscopic optic nerve head photographs is described. Images were acquired with a fundus camera, on a color slide film. Slides were then scanned and digitized. A handheld stereoscope was used for stereoscopic viewing on a computer monitor. A scanning resolution of 300 dpi appeared optimal. At this resolution, the storage utilization was 16 kilobytes and the scanning time was 160 seconds per patient.
