A Sargon user-defined Octopus program was devised to quantitate central visual field changes following laser photocoagulation for choroidal neovascular membranes. The program was found to be reliable in testing the nine patients studied. All patients had areas of improved and areas of reduced sensitivity. The areas of reduced sensitivity were larger than the areas of improved sensitivity (P less than 0.05), with a net negative change in sensitivity found in all cases. However, the improved… CONTINUE READING
