Eye Cup-to-Disk Ratio in Glaucoma

Hi Guys,

I am reading ophthalmology from MTB2 and KLN and quite confused.

Cup-to-Disk ratio is >0.3 is that for open or closed angle glaucoma (MTB says closed and KLN said open angle)

Help please

Open angle... Close angle is acute and may not have time for cup to disk ratio to change. But if they say chronic glaucoma then c:d ratio>3
