The outcome of repeated measurements of the differential light sensitivity fluctuates slightly. This fluctuation can be markedly increased in glaucoma patients but has also been described at the border of the blind spot of healthy subjects. The question arises, therefore, whether in glaucoma this increase may be due to the fact that many test locations may touch the border of (detected or undetected) scotomas. This study compares the behavior of the threshold at the border of glaucomatous… CONTINUE READING
