PURPOSE To determine typical patterns of repeatable glaucomatous visual field progression. DESIGN Retrospective analysis of data obtained from two prospective studies. METHODS Included were 72 eyes of 72 patients tested up to six times over 2 years, and 40 eyes of 40 patients followed annually for up to 12 years. Each patient had two abnormal baseline(More)
Physical training in water might be included in a comprehensive pulmonary rehabilitation programme, but data on the feasibility and safety of this technique in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients are lacking. We studied cardiorespiratory parameters of 20 stable COPD patients (10 with forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) < 35% of(More)
OBJECTIVE The amplitude-modulation-following response (AMFR) is the frequency component detectable in the electroencephalogram (EEG) or magnetoencephalography (MEG) corresponding to the modulation frequency of an amplitude modulated tone used as a continuous acoustic stimulus. Various properties of the AMFR depend on modulation frequency, suggesting that(More)
PURPOSE To assess the agreement of disc topography measurements between the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (HRT II), Retinal Thickness Analyzer (RTA), and Optical Coherence Tomograph (StratusOCT). DESIGN Observational cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS Forty-two randomly chosen eyes of 42 subjects. METHODS Each subject underwent HRT II, RTA, and(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate differences in visual function, optic disc topography, and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness between healthy eyes of blacks and whites. METHODS Visual function was assessed in healthy eyes of 50 blacks and 50 whites using standard automated perimetry, short-wavelength automated perimetry, and frequency doubling technology(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the accuracy of a prototype electronic device for recording eye drop usage. PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS Ten volunteers were randomly assigned to one of five usage patterns designed to mimic common patterns of use in glaucoma patients from 100% compliant to 50% compliant. All participants agreed to adhere to a pre-determined "dosing"(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the association between patterns of visual field (VF) loss and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness measurements. DESIGN Observational cross-sectional study. METHODS One hundred twenty-one glaucoma patients and 65 healthy subjects from the Diagnostic Innovations in Glaucoma Study (DIGS) were included. All glaucoma patients(More)
PURPOSE To determine the overlap in defective visual field locations between the right and left eyes of primary open-angle glaucoma patients. DESIGN Cross-sectional retrospective analysis of data from a prospectively designed longitudinal study. PARTICIPANTS Patients with glaucomatous optic neuropathy in at least 1 eye and 2 consecutive reliable(More)
PURPOSE To compare the diagnostic results of four perimetric tests and to identify useful parameters from each for determining abnormality. METHODS One hundred eleven eyes with glaucomatous optic neuropathy (GON), 31 with progressive optic neuropathy (PGON) 53 with ocular hypertension, and 51 with no disease were included (N = 246). Visual field results(More)
PURPOSE To determine the relationship between areas of glaucomatous retinal nerve fiber layer thinning identified by optical coherence tomography and areas of decreased visual field sensitivity identified by standard automated perimetry in glaucomatous eyes. DESIGN Retrospective observational case series. PARTICIPANTS Forty-three patients with(More)
