METHODS One hundred nine subjects with best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) ≥ 20/20 and no disease other than glaucoma [glaucoma suspects (GS)=79, EMG=14, normal controls (NC)=16 and comparable age range were tested. Noncontact intraocular pressure (IOP), pattern electroretinogram (PERG… CONTINUE READING
