• Background: This study was undertaken to determine whether the interval between visual field tests affects the ability to detect progres sive glaucomatous field loss. • Methods: One hundred and nineteen retinal locations which were deteriorating significantly by ≥1 dB/year (untreated normal tension glaucoma patients: 6 eyes) were studied. Analysis was repeated using ‘thinned’ visual field tests: one test per year instead of the complete three per year over a period of 4 years. • Results: The… CONTINUE READING
