In this paper we studied 45 patients (72 eyes) with Tilted Optic Disc emphasizing that the ophthalmologist should be aware of this congenital anomaly to prevent:

  1. - the ambliopia by early diagnosis

  2. - clinical and surgical inappropriate treatments

We compared through the paired t test, in 12 unilateral cases, the following parameters in the normal and the affected eye:

  1. - Keratometry

  2. - Corneal thickness

  3. - Anterior Chamber Depth (dynamic and static)

  4. - Lens thickness

We did not find significant statistical differences.

We got various visual fields changes: altitudinal defects, quadrantanopia and incongruous hemianopia of the inner isopters. The Echo-biometry of the oblique diameters of the eye showed a nasal inferior ectasia.
