Optic Disc Grading

The disc grading component of the programme asks you to grade 40 pairs of optic discs across nine different parameters. Each set of disc photos has been independently graded by a glaucoma specialist ophthalmologist and a glaucoma prescriber optometrist, and correct answers are based on combinations of these gradings.

For some categories, there may be more than one correct option, but just pick the one option that you think best represents the optic disc you are grading. A mark of 6/9 (67%) is required to pass each disc. You are allowed up to three attempts per optic disc. If you pass the assessment, you are still able to repeat it, but please note that your last attempt will be the one that is recorded.
