PURPOSE To determine the influence of several factors on standard automated perimetry test results in glaucoma. METHODS Longitudinal Humphrey field analyzer 30-2 Swedish interactive threshold algorithm data from 160 eyes of 160 glaucoma patients were used. The influence of technician experience, time of day, and season on the mean deviation (MD) was determined by performing linear regression analysis of MD against time on a series of visual fields and subsequently performing a multiple linear… Expand

TLDR
The authors found that for each 10% increase in FP responses, the mean deviation (MD) increases by 1 dB and the manufacturer recommends a cutoff of 15% for false-positive responses, which is too high and clinicians should be wary of how fields are used when even a FP rate less than this occurs. Expand
Comparison of Short- And Long-Term Variability On Standard Perimetry and Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography in Glaucoma.
TLDR
Since current event-based algorithms for detection of glaucoma progression on SAP and SD-OCT have relied on short-term variability data to establish their normative databases, these algorithms may be underestimating the variability in the long-term and thus may overestimate progression over time. Expand
Quantification of Visual Field Variability in Glaucoma: Implications for Visual Field Prediction and Modeling
TLDR
VF variability increases with the severity of glaucoma damage and decreases with eccentricity, and taking into account heteroscedasticity has no advantage in VF modeling. Expand
Predictors of Long-Term Visual Field Fluctuation in Glaucoma Patients.
TLDR
This study identified novel predictors of VF fluctuation, and explains nearly 60% of the pointwise variance, and suggests increased frequency of testing and better analytics will help to identify VF progression more accurately. Expand
Predicting Global Test-Retest Variability of Visual Fields in Glaucoma.
TLDR
Inclusion of archetype VF loss patterns and TD values based on first VFs improved the prediction of the global test-retest variability than using traditional global VF indices alone. Expand
Factors Associated with Midterm Visual Field Variability in Patients with Stable Glaucoma
TLDR
Glaucomatous patients with worse VF sensitivity scores (both MD and VFI indices) present higher VF test variability, and the association between CV and the SAP MD and between CVand VFI remained significant (P ≤ 0.010). Expand
Evidence-based Criteria for Assessment of Visual Field Reliability.
TLDR
FL have little impact on reliability in patients with established glaucoma, while FP, and to a lesser extent FNs and TD, significantly affect reliability. Expand
A Method to Measure the Rate of Glaucomatous Visual Field Change
TLDR
GRI provides a robust measure of glaucomatous VF change, operates without discontinuity over the entire perimetric range, and can be used to identify fast progressors. Expand
Multi-center comparison of the Toronto Portable Perimeter to the Humphrey Field Analyzer: A Pilot Study.
TLDR
The pilot results suggest that the Toronto Portable Perimeter may offer an accessible alternative to HFA VF testing, and patients significantly preferred the TPP to the HFA examination experience. Expand
Influence of glaucoma surgery on visual function

Reliability of computerized perimetric threshold tests as assessed by reliability indices and threshold reproducibility in patients with suspect and manifest glaucoma.
TLDR
Reliability of visual field test results in patients with glaucoma expressed as threshold reproducibility, can be predicted by amount of field loss alone, and traditional patient reliability indices contribute surprisingly little in this regard. Expand
False-negative responses in glaucoma perimetry: indicators of patient performance or test reliability?
TLDR
The increased frequencies of false-negative answers in eyes with field loss were strongly associated with field status and may be explained by the increased variability in threshold values typically found in such eyes. Expand

PURPOSE To quantify factors affecting test-retest variability of threshold measurements over a series of 3 serial visual fields (VF). DESIGN Prospective comparative observational study. Expand
Reliability of simultaneous visual field testing.
TLDR
There is no decrement in VF performance or reliability when patients undergo simultaneous testing with another patient in the same room, andBusy clinical practices may be able to minimize costs and maximize efficiency by having 1 technician simultaneously supervise more than 1 test-taker in thesame space.

Glaucoma monitoring in a clinical setting: glaucoma progression analysis vs nonparametric progression analysis in the Groningen Longitudinal Glaucoma Study.
TLDR
Nonparametric progression analysis had fairly good agreement with GPA, especially in cases of more advanced disease, NPA labeled more eyes as having progression than GPA. Expand
Influence of visual field testing frequency on detection of glaucoma progression with trend analyses.
TLDR
Increasing the frequency of visual field testing leads to earlier detection of glaucoma progression, especially with global trend analyses, which has significant implications for the care of patients with glAUcoma. Expand

Assessment of false positives with the Humphrey Field Analyzer II perimeter with the SITA Algorithm.
TLDR
HFA II SITA-S underestimates patients' FP errors, particularly among normal patients, leading clinicians and researchers to an inaccurate determination of the amount and severity of visual field loss. Expand
