Glaucoma is one of the most urgent problems in ophthalmology, which is of great medical and social importance due to the high prevalence and severity of complications of the disease, often leading to blindness and disability.

Particular attention is paid to the analysis of damage to optic disk and three inner layers of retina that make up the ganglion cell complex (GCC): layers of nerve fibers, ganglion cells and inner plexiform layer, representing axons, cell bodies (somes) and dendrites of the ganglion cells, respectively [6]. The study of these parameters at various stages of glaucoma is relevant.
